WSU’s Su’a arrested for failure to appear in court


FROM PULLMAN — WSU sophomore linebacker Chester Su’a was arrested on an outstanding warrant Friday afternoon for failure to appear in court on a misdemeanor hit-and-run charge, Pullman Police Sgt. Dan Dornes said.

Su’a was transported to Whitman County jail, Dornes said, before posting bail in the amount of $1,050. Su’a was released, played in Saturday’s game and was credited with a tackle.

UPDATE: A WSU spokesperson said coaches are aware of the situation and will handle it internally, as is the standard.

Dornes said Su’a was cited for hit-and-run after a July 25 incident in which the vehicle he was driving – borrowed from a friend – allegedly collided with a van near Opal Street and Campus Street in Pullman and drove away.

Su’a told police that the van had struck the vehicle he was driving, Dornes said, but inspection of the other vehicle indicated it was more likely that the vehicle Su’a was driving had struck the van.

The arrest warrant was dated Nov. 2, Dornes said, though it is uncertain when Su’a was scheduled to appear in court.
