Former UL player arrested in Kansas

A former UL football player, already facing a misdemeanor charge following the alleged burglary of a teammate's dorm room, has been charged in a Kansas robbery.

Lawyer Davis, who was a wide receiver on the Ragin' Cajuns team, was arrested in June and later charged by the Riley County District Attorney's Office with aggravated robbery.   Davis had voluntarily quit UL's team before the June robbery; he returned home to Kansas after the spring semester.

Davis is accused of robbing a 17-year-old victim of money, property, a wallet and cell phone "by force or by threat of bodily harm," court documents indicate. The complaint accuses Davis of injuring the victim during the June 7 incident. The complaint filled out by police indicates the injury was minor. 

The next trial date in the case is a preliminary hearing set for September, court records indicate. Two others have been charged in the case, which is still under investigation.

Riley County Police were unable to provide details of the incident because of Kansas' criminal history laws, a spokesman said. However, according to a police blotter published at the time by KMAN News Radio in the area, police at the time released the following information:  "Officers filed a report for aggravated robbery, aggravated kidnapping, and criminal damage to property in the 2200 block of College Ave. on June 8, 2017 at approximately 2:00 AM. Officers listed (crime victim's name redacted), 17, of Manhattan, as the victim when he reported that 2 known and 4 unknown suspects attacked him and took his cell phone, wallet, and cash. (Crime victim's name redacted) reported that they also damaged his watch during the attack. The total loss associated with this case is approximately $1,232. Police ask that anyone with information contact RCPD or the Manhattan Riley County Crime Stoppers."

Davis was among the fifteen UL football players facing charges in April after they allegedly took things from a former teammate's dorm room. Two originally were charged with a misdemeanor, including Davis. The other 13 were booked on a conspiracy charge, a felony. 

In June, Stutes filed a bill of information formally charging all 15 young men with criminal mischief, a misdemeanor.  Stutes said at the time that the diversion program typically lasts six months, and places certain conditions on participants that must be followed. He said the program is used frequently for people who have made a mistake and are willing to do the work to correct it. 

"It's an opportunity to redeem themselves, to pay back a price to society. The end result is that the charges are dismissed," Stutes said in an interview at the time. "I believe in redemption, and this is part of that."
