Washington State wide receiver Drew Loftus was arrested early Friday morning after he allegedly tried to steal a couple of bottles of tequila from a grocery store, according to the Spokesman-Review. He was given misdemeanor citations for third-degree theft, minor in possession of alcohol and minor intoxicated in public before being released.
So what exactly is Loftus alleged to have done?
Well, being that Loftus is only 19 years old it makes it hard for him to purchase alcohol on his own. Which means that he would either need a friend that was of age to buy the alcohol for him or he could procure a fake ID to make the purchase.
Or he could do what he was charged with doing, according to the report, which was walk into the Dissmore's grocery store in Pullman and shove two bottles of tequila down his pants. Because nobody would ever notice something strange about a person walking with two bottles of tequila down their pants.
Instead of walking right out of the store, Loftus may have decided it was best to throw everybody off the scent by grabbing a carton of eggs and then heading to the checkout counter to buy the eggs. Because what you want to do when you have two bottles of tequila stuffed in your pants is take a lot of unneccessary steps to get eggs and then stand still at a checkout counter while buying the eggs you don't actually need.
This is criminal mastermind stuff, folks. I hope you're writing it down.
When police arrived they observed that Loftus appeared to be intoxicated, which led to the public intoxication citation.
Loftus had 1 reception for 37 yards in 2012, a feat that would be remarkable if it's discovered he had two bottles of tequila in his pants at that time as well.
Washington State is aware of the arrest and said it will handle the matter internally.
