“Trey is no longer a member of our football team,” Miles said in a statement. “We have gathered information on this incident and we feel it’s best for us to part ways.”
Lealaimatafao, a redshirt freshman from San Antonio, Texas, was arrested June 19 for simple battery and simple robbery stemming from a fight in the parking lot of a Baton Rouge bar.
Police said Lealaimatafao “dug through the pockets” of a man who had been beaten unconscious and then “punched the victim’s girlfriend in the face with a closed fist” when she tried to stop him. After continuing to “dig through the male victim’s pockets,” witnesses said Lealaimatafao, 18, “fled the scene when authorities arrived.”
Lealaimatafao was a three-star recruit in the 2014 class and didn’t play a down in his only season with the program.
