3 Texas Tech football players arrested on burglary charges

Texas Tech freshmen football players Julius Howard, Dimitri Lott and Rashad Hunt face burglary charges after being arrested at about 3 a.m. on Friday for allegedly breaking into a house, Sgt. Mark Wims of the Lubbock Police Department said Tuesday.

According to the police report, two of the three charged were spotted walking out of a house where a party was being held. It was then noticed that a laptop and iPod were missing from the residence. The three were spotted in a car and they drove off. Police made a traffic stop of the car at 2:52 a.m., found the items in the car and arrested the three players.

Texas Tech has not yet dismissed or suspended any of the players.

"We wait until a guy’s guilty," Texas Tech coach Mike Leach told the Associated Press. "But if we’re certain somebody’s guilty, we may act sooner."

Howard, a linebacker from Irving Nimitz, and Lott, an offensive lineman, are both true freshman that have not played this season. Hunt, a defensive lineman, is a redshirt freshman that is academically ineligible, but had been allowed to practice with the team.
