Florida State linebacker Arrington Jenkins has been arrested for a felony motorcycle theft; it's the Seminoles' second grand theft arrest in three days.

Florida State's Arrington Jenkins, a redshirt freshman linebacker from Miami, was arrested Sunday on a felony vehicle grand theft charge, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.

Jenkins allegedly stole a motorcycle, but, as Florida State beat writer Bob Ferrante reports, his alleged quote on that subject is likely to become message board legend:

Arrested FSU LB Arrington Jenkins allegedly said: "Anyone who leaves a motorcycle out in the open should expect to have it stolen."

Ferrante additionally reports that the motorcycle was recovered and returned to its original owner with significant damage.

Jenkins has not played this season while redshirting, but Tomahawk Nation's Bud Elliott called him "ultra-talented" and an "excellent athlete" when he committed to Florida State in January

The arrest is the second felony arrest for grand theft for a Florida State football player in three days: cornerback Avis Commack was arrested for allegedly stealing an iPad on Friday.
