DT Lealaimatafao dismissed from LSU following arrest

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — LSU coach Les Miles says he has dismissed defensive tackle Trey Lealaimatafao from the team because of his recent arrest on allegations of hitting a woman outside a bar after she tried to stop him from robbing her unconscious boyfriend.

The redshirt freshman has not played for LSU. He turned himself into authorities June 18, two days after the alleged late-night incident.

Miles quickly suspended Lealaimatafao after his arrest. The coach says he and his staff have since "gathered more information and feel it's best for us to part ways."

Lealaimatafao is a native of San Antonio, Texas, who redshirted last year as a freshman with the Tigers after injuring himself while punching through glass in a weight room.
