Michael Weathers, a member of the Oklahoma State Cowboys, has been suspended from the team after being charged with a felony.
In a blockbuster report from CBS, following with a statement from the school to the famed outlet, it was revealed the redshirt sophomore transfer guard faces a felony grand larceny charge, as well as knowingly hiding stolen property.
This is, obviously, a huge deal.
Before transferring to Oklahoma State, Michael Weathers played for Miami (OH).
Oklahoma State Cowboys head coach Mike Boynton provided a statement to CBS Sports. It reads:
“Michael was suspended from team activities as soon as we learned of the incident. He remains suspended indefinitely.”
The young man is accused of stealing items from various wallets, including a debit card, school ID, credit card and insurance card. This apparently happened on September 9 at a local bar called J.R. Murphy’s.
His counting-stats are not really all that important when it comes to this, especially as his hearing is set for October 1, but he was expected to play a relatively large rule for Oklahoma State. When he lasted played for Miami (OH), he averaged 16.7 points per game.
