Yet another college football player has been arrested. For the sixth day in a row, and the seventh time in the past eight days an FBS student athlete has been charged by law enforcement.
Missouri wide receiver Levi Copelin has joined the list, but for a much lesser offence than some of the others have committed.
The redshirt freshman was charged with a class B misdemeanour of disturbing the peace.
According to Kansas City Star, Copelin went into the campus student ID center around 4 p.m. on Thursday to get a replacement ID card but he was told there was a hold on his account. According to MU police captain Brian Weimer, Copelin became upset and made “statements that the staff felt were threatening.”
The Mizzou football department released a statement saying they were aware of the incident and were dealing with it internally.
I very much doubt Copelin's punishment will be more severe than a telling off and a few extra sprints. In the grand scheme of things it is hardly a heinous crime been committed.
Copelin caught three passes on the season for a total of 61 yards, and made four tackles as a part of the special teams unit.
