PULLMAN — Washington State starting linebacker C.J. Mizell has been kicked off the football team after he was arrested this weekend in connection with a fight at a fraternity house.
Coach Mike Leach said Tuesday that Mizell was no longer on the team because of a violation of team policy.
Pullman police say Mizell was arrested Sunday on misdemeanor charges of assault and trespassing. Police say Mizell tried to enter a party at the Delta Tau Delta fraternity house on Saturday night. When he was denied entry, police say Mizell punched one of the members and fled.
A native of Tallahassee, Fla., Mizell started nine games at linebacker last season, recording 56 tackles and three sacks. Mizell had previous discipline problems at WSU.
