Cougars’ Long, Laurenzi arrested
Tue., July 24, 2012
College football: Two potential starters on the Washington State football team were arrested in separate incidents during the past four days.
Starting senior linebacker Travis Long, who is representing WSU at Pac-12 media day in Los Angeles today, was arrested Friday evening on suspicion of minor in possession of alcohol, a Pullman Police Department employee confirmed.
Long’s date of birth is listed in the Pullman police log as July 24, 1991, making today his 21st birthday.
On Sunday, defensive tackle Anthony Laurenzi was arrested on suspicion of third-degree theft at 1690 SE Harvest Dr., which is the address of the Walmart shopping center in Pullman.
The department’s spokesman, Cmdr. Chris Tennant, was out of the office when attempts to reach him were made Monday afternoon, and further details of the arrests were not immediately available.
A WSU spokesman confirmed that coaches are aware of the situation, which will be an internal matter going forward, and also confirmed that Long did make the trip to Los Angeles along with quarterback Jeff Tuel and coach Mike Leach.
Hawks, Clemons agree to deal
NFL: Defensive end Chris Clemons and the Seattle Seahawks agreed to terms on a multiyear deal that will keep Clemons under contract beyond the 2012 season, his agent confirmed.
Clemons’ agent, Donal Henderson, confirmed the agreement.
Clemons has been Seattle’s top pass rusher the past two seasons, recording 11 sacks in both 2010 and 2011.
But he was entering the final year of his contract and showed his displeasure by not participating in some offseason team activities. – AP
