Pullman Police Flag Two Washington State Player for Possible Penlities
Washington State's Tago arrested in robbery investigation
PULLMAN (AP) — Washington State linebacker Logan Tago has been arrested on suspicion of robbery and assault in an incident that occurred in June.
The Pullman Police Department said Tuesday that Tago was arrested, photographed and fingerprinted Monday and then immediately released from jail.
Police did not release any details of the alleged crimes. The police spokesman was not immediately available for comment Tuesday.
The 6-foot-3, 235-pound sophomore played in the Cougars' first two games this season, but it was not known if he would play Saturday against Idaho.
A Washington State team spokesman declined to comment Tuesday on Tago's arrest, other than to say the team will continue to assist authorities.
Police recommend assault charge for Washington State safety
PULLMAN (AP) — The Pullman Police Department is recommending that Washington State safety Shalom Luani be charged with second degree assault for a fight outside a pizza restaurant in August.
The Whitman County prosecuting attorney's office will make the decision on whether Luani is ultimately charged with the felony.
Washington State football spokesman Bill Stevens said Luani will play in Saturday's game against Idaho.
Pullman police previously told reporters that the 22-year-old Luani became verbally abusive when his order took too long, then went outside and struck the victim in the face.
Luani, an honorable mention All-Pac-12 player in 2015, did not play in Washington State's season opening loss to Eastern Washington.
He had two interceptions in last Saturday's loss at Boise State.
