For most people their 21st birthday is something they will (or will try) to remember. However, for Washington State wide receiver Drew Loftus, it is something he may want to forget soon. In a report by The Spokesman-Review on Thursday it was announced that Loftus, a 6-3, 193 lb RS Junior, was arrested early Thursday morning by Pullman Police.

The call came in from Dominoes where Loftus was arrested for fourth-degree assault. Two people had said that they were assaulted by Loftus before he took off on foot.
It was said that Loftus and another unnamed football player were at Stubblefield’s Bar where they were not supposed to be when one of the victims was filming the area. Since Loftus was not supposed to be at the bar he was upset with the person that was filming. Loftus then went outside where he was accused of punching someone before taking off on foot.
This is not Loftus’ first issue with the police as he was arrested last year after trying to steal alcohol from Dissmore’s, a local grocery store near the campus. It was also mentioned in the original report that Loftus also had a run in with the police after suspected car prowling, that was originally reported by the Tri-City Herald.
Loftus, a walk on receiver, was let back onto the team last year after breaking one of Mike Leach’s big three rules; no drugs, no stealing, no hitting women. It appears that Loftus is still on the team as he was in attendance of camp the other day and was involved throughout the day.
