LSU’s Tyler Taylor Suspended After Arrest
An LSU football player has been suspended, after an arrest back in the spring.
A native of Buford, Georgia, Taylor allegedly served as the getaway driver in the burglary, in which four individuals stole firearms, before leaving the scene.
Surveillance video of the burglary, which took place back on January 8, helped to identify the four suspects, one of which is a juvenile.
An arrest warrant for the 19-year old Taylor was issued on May 27 for conspiracy to commit a crime, party to a crime and theft by receiving stolen property, which are all felonies.
The 6-foot-2, 242-pound Taylor, who has yet to be charged by the Forsyth County district attorney’s office, has been suspended by LSU for violation of team rules.
As a freshman in 2017, Taylor played in all of LSU's 13 games, compiling 32 tackles, including one-and-a-half sacks.
