Florida State linebacker facing felony charges
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida State's Nigel Carr is facing suspension while authorities sort out a handful of charges against the junior linebacker from Jacksonville, including two felony charges.
The 20-year-old was arrested by Tallahassee police Sunday on two counts of auto burglary, criminal mischief, credit card theft and fraud. The report also noted Carr was arrested July 22 for possession of marijuana.
Coach Jimbo Fisher, who is in North Carolina for the annual Atlantic Coast Conference football kickoff gala, says the university's policy is to suspend athletes facing felony charges.
Carr was named the Seminoles most dependable linebacker in spring practice and was slated to begin the season as their starting strong side linebacker.
