Another Day, Another UT Rocket Arrested and Dismissed
Wed, 25 May 2011 22:29:29 GMT —
The Lucas County Jail is starting to look like a University of Toledo locker room.
For the second day in a row, we learn of a UT football player who has been arrested, jailed and kicked off the football team.
Today, it's senior linebacker Isaiah Ballard, a Rogers High School alum.
Ballard allegedly punched a man in the face several times, breaking his jaw.
The former Ram was released from jail today after posting a portion of his bond. He has a court date set for July 7.
Rocket football coach Tim Beckman dismissed Ballard from the team today, the second dismissal in as many days.
As we told you Tuesday, red-shirt defensive end Damien McIntosh was arrested, jailed and removed from the team for allegedly punching his girlfriend in the face, breaking her nose and causing minor head injuries.
The rest of the current Rockets open their season hosting New Hampshire on September 1.
