The Advocate is reporting that LSU linebacker Tyler Taylor has been suspended indefinitely after coaches found out on Wednesday that he was arrested this offseason.

Taylor, a sophomore from Buford, Ga., was arrested for allegedly serving as the getaway driver in the burglary of a Georgia pawn shop back on Jan. 8. The LSU linebacker was eventually arrested for the crime on May 31.
quote:

An incident report by the Cumming Police Department said that on the early morning of Jan. 8, three men and a juvenile broke into a pawn shop in Cumming, Georgia, stole several firearms and fled the scene in a vehicle driven by Taylor.

The report said a Cumming police officer obtained arrest warrants May 27 for Taylor, 19, for conspiracy to commit a crime, party to a crime and theft by receiving stolen property.

On May 31, Taylor was booked into a local jail, and nearly five hours later he posted bond for the total sum of $33,550, according to the booking report from the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office.
All three of the crimes that Taylor was arrested for were classified as felonies, according to report.

Taylor played in all 13 games during his freshman season last year and started in five of those game. He recorded 32 total tackles and 1.5 sacks.

Maybe he was driving his car and two or three other people just said stop here and didn't tell him what they had planned.... This kind of shirte happens a lot with people who have no car or have a suspended license..... 99 % of the time a car is first stolen before the robbery

It was a mistake made by a young man. Can we have a team vote to see if he should be given a second chance?

If he did this and tried to hide it from the team then hell no he doesn't deserve another chance. Go to a JC and work your was off in the classroom and in the community and maybe then he can get considered to rejoin the team. Even then, it wouldn't be a sure thing. That's just my opinion.

What a shame. He's a very good football player and had the potential to achieve great things if he stayed out of trouble and worked hard. Starting at LB at LSU as a freshman on a good SEC defense is VERY impressive. Has one of the best LB coaches in the country if not the best. He had such a great opportunity, and If he committed the crime, it shows a lack of discipline that is self-destructive. I can only hope he learns a very difficult lesson from this, and he improves himself after the consequences are realized.
