Zayd Issah, a three-star linebacker and member of Penn State's 2013 recruiting class, was arrested for his alleged involvement with a counterfeit cash scheme, reports the Patriot-News:

Township Police Chief Rob Martin confirmed Thursday that Issah, 18, was arrested after an alleged attempt on March 9 to pass counterfeit money was reported at the McDonald's in the 4400 block of North Front Street.

According to the arrest papers, Issah and two other suspects who were apparently friends of his fled the scene as soon as the police arrived. The other suspects were later identified told police Issah had passed counterfeit bills at two places.

Facebook messages between Issah and one of the suspects revealed that Issah was aware the money was fake, and he was seeking a plan to "clean" it.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for May 9. It is still unknown if and how the arrest will affect Issah's prospects at Penn State.
