Ex-Mountaineer charged with second robbery

Earlier this week West Virginia linebacker Branko Busick was arrested and charged with armed robbery. An arrest that led to his dismissal from the West Virginia football team. Well, I don't think Busick is all that worried about not being able to play football anymore, as he has an incredibly full plate right now.

It seems one robbery just wasn't enough for Busick, so he's now been charged for a second.

Busick was arrested in another, unrelated armed robbery on Wednesday, said Morgantown Police Sgt. Robert Gilmore.

The victim in the second case told police he was hit in the face and knocked down as he walked home from work June 23. This week, he identified Busick as the man who stole his iPhone and a wallet containing about $70.

Gilmore said that victim was treated for his injuries at Ruby Memorial Hospital.

According to the police, it was information learned following the first arrest of Busick that led to the second arrest, though they wouldn't go into any detail on that. After being arrested originally on Monday, Busick was released on $25,000 bond paid for by his former WWE wrestler father, Big Bully Busick. Now he finds himself in Northern Central Regional Jail where he's being held on a $250,000 bond.

Should Busick be convicted, he faces up to 10 years in prison on each count.

I agree with osuwahoo. It's all Tressell's fault. If you don't believe me, just ask AD Gene Smith and President E. Gordon McGoo. That's what I heard Geno say earlier this week in an interview with Jack Arute. Tressell, and Tressell alone was responsible for this ongoing Buckeye mess. He kept all the shenanigans that were going on in Columbus away from the whole school administration for a decade if we are to believe Smitty. You sir, are a fraud, a liar, and a coward when the chips are down and you chose to throw the sweater vest to the wolves.

He won't make much of a tight end after prison.

Evidentally, he will be a wide receiver when he gets out

If he somehow avoids prison time, there's a scholarship waiting for him at Florida.

Hey Branko; quit robbing dudes in your own area code. My man; the cops know you are on the prowl and can put the leg-lock on some hapless drunk to get his cash thanks to your obvious great upbringing by pops. Come on Busick; at least drive 90 miles up the road to Pittsburgh and attempt a pile-driver on some unsuspecting Pirate fan leaving PNC Park. A phone and $70 bucks isn't worth your head-lock on some poor cat. I foresee a bright future for you with the guidance of good ol' dad.
