Iowa State sophomore wide receiver Albert Gary had a warrant issued for his arrest on Wednesday morning by university police, and Gary turned himself in to a local sheriff's office. He has since posted bond and been released.
The receiver is alleged to have commited first-degree robbery, which is a class B felony and is punishable by up to 25 years in prison.
In June Gary allegedly held up a man at gunpoint on campus along with a group of others. Gary then fled the scene with the others after police had been called, and four pellet guns were found north of the crime scene. Police determined that Gary had been involved during their investigation.
As for what this would mean for Gary's availability to the Cyclones, you'd think getting charged with a felony would probably cut into your playing time, but as of now that's not the case. When reached on Tuesday about the story, head coach Paul Rhoads said that the team was aware of the incident and that Gary had been suspended for three games earlier this season.
He did not indicate that Gary would have to sit out Friday night's game against Oklahoma State, though I'd expect that to change before long.
