Charlie Strong’s core values of honesty, treating women with respect, and no drugs, guns, or stealing has been the backbone of a culture change in Austin. However Texas offensive lineman Terrell Cuney has allegedly violated that last one.
Horns247 is reporting that Cuney, a redshirt freshman, has been arrested for shoplifting. Very few details of the incident have been made public, but it will be interesting to see how it’s handled by the university. Strong dismissed nine players last season for rules violations, and particularly hard hit was the offensive line.
The news comes as the Longhorns report for fall camp today, and begin practice on Friday. Cuney isn’t expected to see the field much in 2015 as he buried on the depth chart behind starting center Taylor Doyle and back up Jake Raulerson.
The Austin-American Statesman has provided a little bit more information about the arrest. The incident, considered a Class B misdemeanor, allegedly happened at a Walmart where he was cited and released; not actually taken to jail. It’s still considered an arrest though, and carries a maximum penalty of 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine.
