An LSU Football Player Was Arrested And Kicked Off The Team After Getting Caught On Camera Robbing An Apartment In His Personalized Gear
TheBigLead- Adrian Magee, a sophomore offensive lineman at LSU, was arrested on burglary charges on Wednesday. Magee is accused of breaking into an apartment and stealing an X-Box, six X-box games, $1,200 in cash, Gucci flip flops and a Bluetooth speaker. Magee was wearing LSU shorts adorned with his number at the time and realized he may have been caught on camera.
How did he realize this? The victim told him about the cameras when Magee returned to the apartment, stuck his head in the door and asked if there had been a burglary.
The victim told police he is an LSU football fan and immediately recognized Magee, who was wearing LSU issued shorts with his number on them when he stopped by the apartment.
The victim told Magee that he was glad he had security cameras in the apartment, and he planned to review the footage to “see who did it.”
At that point Magee went and got some of the stolen items and returned them. Bail was set at $10,000. Magee has been suspended indefinitely by the team.
And just when you think you've covered all your bases, you get busted by the number you probably picked out for yourself that was screen printed on your team administered shorts. Tough break for our guy Adrian Magee here. When it comes to robbing an on-campus apartment, he really did everything right....other than change out of the personalized athletic gear he was given by the school. If he had just made sure he changed into some Nike brand shorts then he'd probably be strutting around Baton Rouge in some in comfy ass Gucci slippers with some spending money in his pockets as we speak.
That's why my heart really breaks for the kid. To be diligent enough to return to the scene of the crime, poke your head in the door without knocking (again), and ask the tenant "damn bruh, you get robbed" before the tenant in question even offered up that information? That empathy alone would have been enough to eliminate him as a suspect if it weren't for those goddamn shorts. The look on his face when the victimized student told him he had a cameras installed be damned. Without LSU's stupid insistence that their football players constantly identify themselves as football players so that they are granted the spoils of playing football there would have been nothing incriminating about Adrian Magee's presence on that footage.
Just doesn't seem fair, man. When will they stop numbering these student athletes like prisoners? When you really think about it, LSU set the prophecy....Adrian Magee just self fulfilled it. Sad!
P.S. The mental image of a 6'5, 315 pound man with umbrella dreadlocks trying to un-steal an XBox just made my day.
