Michael Tuaua, a defensive end for the Top-5 TCU Horned Frogs, could face felony robbery charges for beating the shit out of some TCU students and stealing their beer. Worst of all? It wasn’t even good beer. It was a case of Keystone Light.
Tuaua, a California native, may not have acted alone. Police are reportedly searching for another football player who might be connected in the attack.
From the Dallas Morning News:
According to the report, police are looking for a second player that may have been involved. Students say they were beaten outside a party and their case of beer was taken. One was sent to a hospital with minor injuries and another was treated at the scene.
Police said one of the attackers was described as having long, bushy hair, which is a notable feature of Tuaua.
According to his TCU bio, Tuaua has 3 tackles and 1/2 a sack in one game played in 2015. He made five starts in 2014, playing in 12 of the Horned Frogs’ 13 games last season. he ranked fourth on TCU’s defense with five sacks.
TCU spokesman says DE Mike Tuaua has been suspended from the program. Tuaua arrested on felony complaint of robbery-bodily injury.

Tuaua was a co-starter for the Horned Frogs on the defensive line. He had been held out of the first two games of the season, though the reasons for that are unclear.
This isn’t the first incident with a major contributor on the TCU defensive line getting the boot for doing something incredibly stupid. In 2013, All-Big 12 DE Devonte Fields was dismissed from the team because of a domestic violence incident. He now starts for Louisville.
You’ll hear a lot of stupid stories this season, but beating the shit out of someone else and stealing their Keystone Light might top them all. What a fucking idiot..
