Tulane LB Trent Mackey Charged With Robbery Last Month, Burglary Monday

I struggle to understand how young athletes that are exceptionally talented and so close to their dreams or at worst a degree do such blatantly stupid things.

In mid August Tulane University star linebacker Trent Mackey was charged with robbery and suspended from the team.

He was awaiting reinstatement and a return to the program.

Monday according to the New Orleans Time-Picayune, Mackey took six steps backwards after being arrested  charged with one count of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling

The arrest Monday stemmed from a July incident that took place before the August arrest.

The victim in the July incident says he was awaken in his home by a man, he later identified as Mackey.

When Mackey realized the victim was awake, he fled the home.

He reported stole and iPhone, 2 watches, and $70 in cash.

Tulane officials will make an announcement soon on Mackey’s status with the school.

Smarten up Nas.
