LSU offensive lineman Adrian Magee was arrested shortly after head coach Ed Orgeron suspended the sophomore from Franklinton for “violating team rules” Wednesday afternoon. Police are charging Magee with simple burglary from an apartment robbery back on April 1st. Big ol’ 73 allegedly lifted an XBox, games, Gucci flip flops (to fuck yo bitch in), an Onyx bluetooth speaker, and $1,200 cash from the off-campus student housing complex on W. Chimes Street.
After finding his door forced open and his beloved gaming console gone, the victim says he began riffling through his place to see what else was missing when Magee came back through the open door and asked the kid if he was burglarized.
The victim says he’s an LSU fan and immediately recognized Magee due to him wearing a shirt with his football jersey number on it.
After the victim told Magee that he was going to check his security cameras to see who burglarized his apartment, Magee walked out and soon returned with several of the victim’s belongings, according to the arrest warrant.
Just another case of a criminal pulling off the perfect heist only to do himself in by returning to the scene of the crime. If there’s no security cameras, brilliant move by Magee to act like a concerned neighbor and throw the scent off his trail. The same goes with wearing his own jersey to break into a stranger’s apartment. Sure, there’s not a whole lot of 6’4″ 325 pound black dudes rocking “The Weeknd” haircut in Baton Rouge these days, but no perp would ever be dumb enough to incriminate themselves by tossing on their own number before committing grand theft. A little reverse psychology by our boy Magee here. Savvy. I like it. But those type of genius plays are all undone the second you don’t spot the cameras and come back rocking the same outfit. You just have to change, my man. That type of laziness and lack of awareness has no place in the SEC — especially on a Coach O team. Shocked this news didn’t drop on a “Tell the Truth” Monday.
And what’s up with this LSU student victim just casually having $1200 cash in his apartment? I’m not going to outright accuse him of slinging that good-good, Mary J, or candy cane, but between the coin and the Gucci flip flops all the classic signs seem to point in that direction. Again, not saying homeboy’s dealing, but not not saying it either. Where there’s smoke….
