Two West Virginia Football Players Arrested
West Virginia junior safety Darwin Cool and senior cornerback Terence Garvin were arrested Tuesday for stealing snacks from a local convenience store, according to a report in The Dominion Post.
The two players face misdemeanor theft charges.
Police said surveillance camera footage showed Garvin taking a bag from behind the counter, which Cook then filled with three bottles of Gatorade and two bags of Doritos. Garvin also placed two additional bags of pretzels in the bag, according to the report.
The incident took place on April 12, but the arrests weren’t issued until April 25.
Theft of merchandise worth $500 or less is punishable by a fine of up to $250.
Garvin started in each of the past twos season for the Mountaineers, leading the team in tackles in 2010 with 76. He had 72 tackles last season, good enough for fourth on the team.
Cook started in 2011 and made 85 tackles, ranking second for WVU, and also snagged two interceptions.
