LSU dismisses Trey Lealaimatafao after second arrest


Following an arrest earlier this month LSU defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao has been dismissed from the program.

LSU redshirt freshman defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao has been kicked off the football team following his arrest in an incident earlier this month that saw him arrested and booked on simple robbery, and simple battery, which qualifies as a felony. The incident took place outside a Reggie’s parking lot.

“Trey is no longer a member of our football team,” Les Miles said in a press release on Monday, via The Advocate. “We have gathered information on this incident and we feel it’s best for us to part ways.”

This is not the tackle’s first go-around with an off-the-field incident.  Lealaimatafao redshirted last season after punching through a window in the program’s weight room, injuring his left arm and was also arrested for allegedly stealing a bicycle from at LSU’s Middleton Library per a report from Steve Dixon of 247Sports.

He was a three-star recruit in the Tigers recruiting class in 2014.

Lealaimatafao was one of four LSU players arrested in two separate incidents on June 18. Quarterback Anthony Jennings, cornerback Dwayne Thomas and defensive lineman Maquedius Bain were also arrested and booked with “unauthorized entry into an inhabited dwelling.”

This has certainly been a difficult month for the LSU football program, as these incidents have certainly cast a black mark at the moment. Miles did the right thing here by dismissing Lealaimatafao who was already given a second and third chance and blew them.
