LSU reserve offensive lineman Adrian Magee was arrested Wednesday afternoon on a count of simple burglary hours after the university indefinitely suspended the Franklinton native.
Baton Rouge police issued the arrest warrant for Magee Tuesday on a count of simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling, a felony. The burglary occurred at a West Chimes Street apartment April 1, according to a police report.
Police noted in the arrest report that numerous LSU athletic players live in this apartment complex, but it is unclear where Magee lives while in Baton Rouge. The address on his arrest report only lists his Franklinton address.
Magee is accused of breaking open the door to the apartment and stealing an X-Box, six X-box games, $1,200 in cash, Gucci flip flops and a Bluetooth speaker.
After the burglary, the victim was looking through his apartment to determine what was missing. A man, later identified as Magee, "poked his head" into the open door of the apartment and asked the resident if he had been burglarized, according to the report.
The victim told police he is an LSU football fan and immediately recognized Magee, who was wearing LSU issued shorts with his number on them when he stopped by the apartment.
The victim told Magee that he was glad he had security cameras in the apartment, and he planned to review the footage to “see who did it.”
Police said that Magee soon left, but returned several minutes later with the X-box and the games that were missing and confessed to the burglary; however, he did not return all of the missing items, according to the report.
Baton Rouge police spokesman Don Coppola said the investigation is ongoing.
According to online records, Magee’s bail was set at $10,000.
LSU released a statement Wednesday afternoon announcing that Magee had been suspended indefinitely for violating team rules.
Magee, a redshirt sophomore this coming season, played in three games last year in a backup role. He served as the Tigers' starting right tackle this spring in place of Toby Weathersby, who missed drills while recovering from an injury. Magee was expected to be a backup this coming year.
Magee was one of just eight healthy offensive linemen that the Tigers fielded this spring. Weathersby (ankle), Will Clapp (shoulder) and Donavaughn Campbell (shoulder) are expected to return to full health by preseason camp. LSU will also add three signees over the summer.
Magee, a 6-5, 310-pounder, redshirted as a rookie in 2015 after a foot injury during his first preseason camp.
PHILADELPHIA — Maybe Tashawn Bower is the difference-maker.
