One member of Miami’s 2013 recruiting class has yet to bring his luggage onto campus, but, when he does, he’ll already have some off-field baggage in tow as well.
First reported by his hometown newspaper in Wayne, NJ, Kevin Olsen has been hit with multiple charges following a one-car accident last month. The quarterback, the Wayne Patch reports, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident, failure to report an accident and careless driving following the May 25 incident.
A bystander told local police that he/she saw Olsen crash his SUV into a tree (not pictured) and, well…
The witness said he saw a black sport utility vehicle, which Olsen was driving, backing up away from a tree that it appeared to hit. Olsen reportedly exited the vehicle, surveyed the damage to the car, got back into the vehicle, and left.
But before leaving the neighborhood, police said Olsen struck another vehicle that was parked on the road. Olsen then exited his car a second time and walked away from the scene, according to the report.
The police report added that “Olsen’s face appeared to have blood on it and that he ‘appeared to be under the influence of something.'” Olsen’s license was also found near the scene of the accident by a resident in the neighborhood, the police report stated.
None of the charges Olsen is facing are felonies as the accident did not result in any serious bodily injury. A court date on the misdemeanor charges has been set for June 20, six days before Olsen’s high school graduation.
Olsen was a four-star member of the Hurricanes’ 2013 recruiting class, rated as the No. 12 pro-style quarterback in the country and the No. 5 player in the state of New Jersey by Rivals.com. He is the younger brother of former Hurricane standout Greg Olsen.
Utah State redshirt freshman wide receiver Josh Davis is in fair condition on Friday, one day after collapsing at spring football practice following sudden cardiac arrest, the university announced.
Davis, initially was listed in critical condition, was breathing on his own. He is in the intensive-care unit at McKay-Dee Hospital in Ogden, Utah.
Davis’ parents arrived in Utah on Thursday evening.
The 6-foot-1, 185-pound Davis, who is from Carlsbad, California, collapsed at Merlin Olsen Field and was immediately treated by the training staff, the university said. He was taken to Logan Regional Hospital.
The university said Davis was stabilized in the Logan hospital before being moved to Ogden.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. – Alabama freshman defensive back Tony Mitchell has been suspended from the team following his arrest on a drug charge.
Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said Monday after the first practice of spring that Mitchell was suspended from the team “and all team activities until we gather more information about the situation and what his legal circumstance is.”
The Holmes County Sheriff’s Office arrested Mitchell and another man, Christophere Lewis, last week on a charge of possession of marijuana with the intent to sell or deliver, according to a post on the department’s Facebook page. Lewis also was charged with carrying a concealed gun without a permit.
“Everybody’s got an opportunity to make choices and decisions,” Saban said. “There’s no such thing as being in the wrong place at the wrong time. You’ve gotta be responsible for who you’re with, who you’re around and what you do, who you associate yourself with and the situations that you put yourself in. It is what it is, but there is cause and effect when you make choices and decisions that put you in bad situations.”
Mitchell, who is from Alabaster, Alabama, was a five-star prospect rated the 34th-best player and No. 3 safety in the 247Composite rankings.
Mitchell was driving the vehicle during a traffic stop. After deputies smelled marijuana, Mitchell picked up a baggie of marijuana from the passenger floorboard, according to the department’s Facebook post.
Sheriff’s deputies found “an additional significant amount of marijuana, a set of scales, a loaded handgun between the passenger seat and center console, and a large amount of cash,” according to the department’s Facebook post.
