You can't do that and play football

Rutgers junior linebacker Izaia Bullock was dismissed from the team on Tuesday after he was charged with attempted murder.  The 22-year-old was reportedly plotting to murder two family members of an acquaintance's family.


Izaia Bullock, 22, a junior at the university from Linden, faces two counts of first-degree attempted murder and two counts of first-degree conspiracy to commit murder.

Bullock was dismissed from the Rutgers football team Tuesday, and the university said in a statement that he will face disciplinary proceedings.

Middlesex County Prosecutor Andrew Carey and Rutgers Police Chief Kenneth Cop announced his arrest and the charges in a news statement Tuesday evening.

Bullock probably wasn't going to the NFL, but that doesn't mean he didn't have a bright future.  Plotting to kill people just derailed that.
