The Clarion-Ledger is reporting that Ole Miss offensive lineman Roderick Taylor was arrested Sunday on suspicion of shoplifting. He was released a few hours later.

"We are gathering facts on the matter, and if appropriate, we will address it accordingly with Rod internally," coach Hugh Freeze said in a statement.

Taylor placed but allegedly failed to pay for two bags of charcoal in a basket underneath his shopping cart while going through a self-checkout line, a source said. The source added his understanding of the case was that Taylor did so by accident and would have to go to court and pay the amount, approximately $40, before the charges would be thrown out.
Taylor appeared in 10 games last season while but was limited with a shoulder injury. He has missed spring practice as a result of surgery on his shoulder.

That's so absurd, there's got to be more to it than that.

Charcoal and not crab legs Charcoal !!! That is mind blowing going to court the cops should be trying to catch folks stealing shopping baskets instead of Charcoal .

Sounds like something I would do because I either spaced out or had 5 other things on my mind. Arrested over a couple bags of charcoal? Get the frick out of here.

"suspicion of shoplifting." if you take something from a store without paying for it, isn't that what shoplifting is? That's what he did. So isn't it just 'shoplifting?' Can one be arrested for suspicion of murder, or suspicion of grand theft?

Somehow after the red lobster stuff I expected crab legs. You can't grill some cheddar bay biscuits.
