Report: USC TE Junior Pomee arrested, faces felony charges

More trouble for USC and Lane Kiffin. (US Presswire)

USC freshman tight end Junior Pomee was arrested and is facing felony charges for burglary, grand theft and possession of stolen goods, the Los Angeles Times reported on Wednesday.

Trojans head coach Lane Kiffin also announced at USC's signing day press conference that Pomee has been suspended as a result of the incident.

Pomee, a 6-foot-3, 250-pounder from Rancho Verde, Calif., was taken into custody by USC campus police officers last week:

Pomee, 21,  was arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen goods by officers with USC’s Department of Public Safety on Jan. 29 at 2:45 a.m. near 642 28th St., Los Angeles Police Sgt. Rudy Lopez said.

Two days later, Pomee was charged with five felony counts, including burglary, grand theft and three counts of receiving stolen goods including an iPad, an iPad Mini and iPhone 5, court records show. Pomee pleaded not guilty Jan. 31 and will appear in court again Feb. 15, said Jane Robison, spokeswoman for the Los Angeles County district attorney's office. He is free on $110,000 bail.

Pomee appeared in all of USC's games last season but did not catch a pass.
