Campbell arrested on larceny charges

Just took a look at the arrest report. Here are the details.

Campbell, 22, of Bloomfield, was arrested just before 11 a.m. Monday pursuant to an arrest warrant issued by the Superior Court of Tolland County subsequent to an investigation by UConn Police.

On Sept. 29, Campbell took a backpack that did not belong to him, the arrest report states. It contained a lap top computer, and other items, valued at $876. No bond was posted, and Campbell is due in Rockville Superior Court on Nov. 17.

Campbell, out for the season with a knee injury, was suspended for a violation of team policies last week. Sources indicated that violation was due to Campbell slacking on his schoolwork. On the surface, it appears the arrest had nothing to do with the previous suspension, but that is unclear now.

Campbell is almost certainly finished with football at UConn. His grades have been an on-going issue, but an arrest like this probably means the end. Edsall has dismissed players in the past for similar episodes (Marvin Taylor).

Another day, another UConn football player in trouble. It would be understandable if they were good, but to be mediocre and have all these problems, that is disgusting.

And I'm being generous by describing this team as "mediocre".
