USC is not having a very good off-season. After having a sub par recruiting class, the Trojans received some more bad news yesterday.
Per The L.A. Times, we learned that USC tight end Junior Pomee has been arrested and facing five felony charges of burglary, grand theft and possession of stolen goods after being arrested last week near the campus on suspicion of receiving stolen property.
A post on USC’s daily incident report for Jan. 29 at 2:09 a.m. includes an entry that an unnamed student was arrested at a location listed as Phi Kappa Psi. USC’s telephone directory lists the Phi Kappa Psi fraternity at 642 W. 28th St. The incident is described as “Theft-Grand” and “receiving Stolen Property.”
“DPS officers responded to an intoxicated student who passed out in an alley behind the location,” the entry said. “The student became combative when contacted by the officers and had to be physically subdued. The officers found the student in possession of a tablet computer and other property that did not belong to him and they subsequently determined that the items had been stolen.
“The student was then arrested and transported to [the LAPD’s Southwest Division] station for booking.”
The 21-year-old Pomee reportedly received stolen goods including an iPad, an iPad Mini and iPhone 5. Pomee pleaded not guilty Jan. 31 and will appear in court again Feb. 15.
Pomee has suspended from all team activities.
