UPDATE: Drew Loftus arrested for assault

(This post was updated at 11:03 to include information from the police report.)

Washington State wide receiver Drew Loftus was arrested for assault in the fourth degree early Thursday morning, his 21st birthday. Officers responded to a call at Domino's Pizza on Northeast Monroe Street where two witnesses claimed to have been assaulted by a suspect, who was fleeing on foot, according to Sgt. Dan Dornes of the Pullman Police Department.

The victims were in Stubblefield's bar and taking video of the atmosphere. They said that Loftus and another football player were upset at being videotaped because they were not supposed to be in the bar.

Once outside a victim claims that he was punched by Loftus, who then ran off

More after the jump.


This is the walk-on wide receiver's third brush with the law and his second since transferring to WSU from Hawaii. In 2011 Loftus was arrested on suspicion of car prowling according to the Tri-City Herald. In 2013 he was arrested after trying to steal a pair of tequila bottles from Dissmore's Grocery on North Grand Ave.

Stealing violates one of coach Mike Leach's three famous rules – no drugs, no stealing, no hitting women. Loftus was dismissed from the team and did not participate during 2013 spring practices, but was allowed back on the team for the 2013 season, although he did not play.

Loftus was a frequent target of quarterback Connor Halliday's passes during spring ball but was not listed on the team's recently released depth chart.

I will update this post when we receive more information about the incident.
