BSU Redshirt Freshman Suspended
Boise State redshirt freshman tight end David Lucero has been suspended indefinitely from the football team after being arrested on a felony charge of attempted strangulation.
Lucero appeared in nine games this season and has four catches for 63 yards as the fifth man in the tight end rotation.
A statement from Boise Police says:
“Officers responded to a call of a fight in progress at a residence near the intersection of South Shoshone Street and Cherry Lane at 10:48 p.m. on Monday, November 16. Witnesses told officers an adult male and adult female known to each other were verbally arguing when the argument turned physical. Following further investigation, officers contacted the male suspect, identified as Lucero, on Tuesday morning. Officers took Lucero into custody and transported him to the Ada County Jail where he was booked under the above charge.”
The Idaho State Board of Education has a policy that any student-athlete convicted of a felony after enrollment is ineligible to compete at any public college or university in the state.
