Arizona dismisses Jordan Poland following arrest

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona offensive lineman Jordan Poland has been dismissed from the team after being arrested on suspicion of trafficking stolen property.

The 20-year-old Poland was booked Wednesday after being accused of pawning a microphone that had been stolen in a burglary, according to Tucson police spokeswoman Sgt. Kimberly Bay.

Investigators don't have enough evidence to say whether Poland was involved in the burglary, which was reported to police on June 27.

Poland, from Rancho Santa Fe, California, redshirted as a freshman last season and was expected to compete for playing time this season.
