WKU running back Allen arrested

Western Kentucky sophomore running back Leon Allen was arrested Sunday morning on a second-degree charge of disorderly conduct.
Allen was taken to the Warren County Jail at 2:35 a.m.
A 6-foot, 235-pound product of Manatee High in Bradenton, Fla., Allen was second on the team in rushing in 2012 with 317 yards on 56 carries, scoring twice and averaging 5.7 ypc.
At Manatee High, Allen was academically ineligible his first three seasons before rushing for 593 yards and eight touchdowns his senior season.
According to the Warren County Regional Jail site, Allen was released at noon today with a bond set at $300.
Western Kentucky director of athletic communications Kyle Neaves confirmed the arrest this morning, saying, “We are aware of the situation and are gathering more information.”
Allen’s arrest is the fifth off-the-field incident for the team this offseason. Senior Kene Anyigbo was charged with marijuana possession, among other charges, in April and has since transferred from the school.
Last month, senior fullback Kadeem Jones was arrested on a DUI charge. His court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
On May 23, senior punter Hendrix Brakefield was arrested at 1:27 a.m. on a charge of alcohol intoxication in a public place. On June 29, kicker Mike Mugler was arrested on charges of alcohol intoxication in a public place, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct of the second degree and menacing.

    It’s actually FIVE off field incidents this off season. You forgot about Kicker Mike Mugler being arrested in June for pretty much the same thing and punter Hendrix Brakefield being arrested for public intox in late May. You can verify with Jordan Wells.
