The Daily Reveille
is reporting that LSU freshman defensive end Frank Herron was arrested Monday on a misdemeanor theft charge.
According to [LSU Police Department spokesman Capt. Cory] Lalonde, a male victim contacted LSUPD this morning after observing another person riding what he believed to be his stolen bicycle in the area of the Cox Auditorium.
When police arrived, they questioned the person riding the bicycle and Herron. Herron admitted to stealing the bike, which was reported stolen by the victim on April 23 from the bike racks by the Huey P. Long Field House.
Lalonde said the other individual who was spotted riding the bike is not considered to be involved in the crime.
Herron was arrested just before 1:30pm on Monday afternoon. Update per DailyReveille Sports:
