Former USC and LSU football players arrested, accused of robbery

Thursday January 21st, 2016

Former USC tight end Bryce Dixon and former LSU defensive lineman Trey Lealaimatafao were arrested on suspicion of committing robberies over a two-day period, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The two are accused of orchestrating seven robberies, including a carjacking. They were booked on suspicion of carjacking and are being held on $100,000 bond.

According to detectives, two or three robberies were committed in Ventura Country, while four or five occurred in Los Angeles.

Both players were dismissed from their teams in 2014 for misconduct. Dixon’s dismissal came after allegations of non-consensual sex, while Lealaimatafao was arrested on battery and robbery charges.
