Mike McNeil Was Facing Lawsuit, Previously Evicted Prior To Alleged Armed Robbery

As we all know, people are innocent of crimes until proven guilty in the United States. Mike McNeil and the other former Auburn football players who are accused of a March 11 armed robbery have not yet stood trial for their accused crimes, but McNeil and his attorneys might find it a little more difficult to prove that he's innocent (or at least deserving of a lesser charge) if they have a serious motive to consider. According to a report at AL.com, McNeil had been evicted twice - the second time just days before the alleged robbery - and was facing a lawsuit for thousands of dollars just before the alleged robbery occurred.

Committing felonies, especially those involving firearms is usually a really bad idea, but at least this development gives the public a little bit of perspective. Last week, most people were probably wondering "Why would those guys do something so stupid?" Well...now you know, I guess.

All four players involved in the alleged robbery have been indicted and are scheduled to be arraigned on Thursday.
