As first reported by SB Nation's Oklahoma State site Cowboys Ride For Free, OSU dismissed second-year running back Herschel Sims last week. Tuesday, he was charged with two counts of felony forgery for his use of a bank account withdrawal slip to take $700 from teammate Jeremiah Tshimanga.
More details from the police report, via the Tulsa World:
Tshimanga told police that when he noticed money was missing from his account, he contacted the bank and through the bank's investigation was able to identify the suspect. Tshimanga said he confronted the suspect and asked for the money back, and the suspect confessed but has failed to repay him, the report states.
As a freshman, Sims produced 242 rushing yards, putting him third on the team behind a pair of sophomores and in line for a very big role in the future. He was rated a four-star recruit by Rivals and ranked as the second best all-purpose back in the country.
