Ex-Mountaineer charged with second robbery

Posted by Tom Fornelli

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.
