Michigan State's Dion Sims Implicated In Computer Theft Ring

Dion Sims, a sophomore tight end for Michigan State, caught 11 passes for 133 yards and three scores in 2009, and has yet to play a down in 2010. Spartan fans now have an inkling why that might be the case: Sims has been suspended following his arrest and implication in a computer-theft ring that stole over 100 laptops from the Detroit public school system and sold them online. Sims is majoring in finance, but apparently wasn't brainy enough to get out of being charged with "receiving and concealing stolen property."

SB Nation's The Only Colors
is properly disgusted:

Seriously?  Not only is this theft quite possibly (edited for honesty - Pete) on a grand scale (at least 104 laptops), but to steal from Detroit?  This just makes me ashamed.  If the charges stick, it's the last we've seen of Sims for this year in a Spartan uniform, and takes tight end from one of the deepest positions of the team to one of the shallowest, albeit still quite talented.  I hope that Sims wasn't involved, and I feel a bit queasy right now.

Even if he gets off, we really wouldn't want to be in Sims' shoes once Mark Dantonio gets ahold of him. Didn't he kill a player for not wearing a tie on gameday that one time?
