Team releases Rutgers football player charged in robbery

PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) Rutgers University in New Jersey has dismissed a football player from the team who was arrested on a robbery charge last weekend in Florida.

Coach Kyle Flood announced the dismissal of Darian Dailey in a news release Thursday.

The defensive back and another man were arrested and charged with robbery after Florida's Sarasota County Sheriff's Office said Dailey and another suspect confronted a bicyclist with a gun early Sunday and demanded money.

The bicyclist got their license plate number as they drove away, and authorities arrested the pair in Manatee County.

The 19-year-old Dailey, of Bradenton, is scheduled to be arraigned July 10 in Sarasota County Court. A lawyer who could comment on his behalf wasn't listed in online court records.

Dailey redshirted last season after arriving at Rutgers.
