One of Marshall's top football recruits from the class of 2013 was arrested early Tuesday morning on two counts of using a fraudulent access device.
According to court records, wide receiver Angelo Jean Louis used a stolen credit card for two different purchases at the 7-Eleven across from campus on 5th Avenue. Jean-Louis carried out transactions totaling $14 and $11.
Jean-Louis was placed under arrest by a Marshall University police officer and booked at the Western Regional Jail at 4:30am. Bail was set at $20,000 and according to reports Jean-Louis was released on bond at 11:35am.
Jean-Louis signed a letter of intent with Miami out of Florida’s Palm Beach Central High School in 2012 but did not have the grades to qualify for admittance. One of ESPN’s top 150 recruits, he attended Fork Union Military Academy last fall and enrolled at Marshall in January. As a academic non-qualifier Jean-Louis has not participated in spring practice.
Marshall released a statement on Jean Louis this morning, "We are aware of his situation. We will handle the matter internally and appropriately.". No updated was provided on the arrest after today's spring practice session.
