Mizzou WR Arrested For Disturbing the Peace (Mugshot)


Missouri WR Levi Copelin has been arrested on suspicion of disturbing the peace in a campus incident. Here are the details from the St. Louis Dispatch:

Copelin, a backup redshirt freshman for the Tigers last season, went to the student union to request a new student ID, and when told by a campus employee that his account was on hold, Copelin “made comments that the staff found threatening,” MU police Captain Brian Weimer said.

After Copelin left the office, the student union staff called MUPD, who contacted Copelin and met him at the police department headquarters on campus, Weimer said. After speaking with Copelin, officers arrested him under state statute 574.010 for first offense peace disturbance, a Class B misdemeanor. Copelin was taken to Boone County Jail and later released on $500 bail. Copelin, a native of Broken Arrow, Okla, has a court date set for Feb. 19.

This is actually Copelin’s second arrest since he’s been at Missouri. He plead guilty to a 2012 charge of marijuana possession.

A Mizzou spokesman said they are aware of the situation but will handle it internally.
