West Virginia Football: Kyle Rose Arrested


According to the Dominion Post, redshirt senior defensive lineman Kyle Rose was arrested in the early morning of April 5.

The article states, Rose was arrested for hitting an officer in the head at Bent Willey’s a local bar in Morgantown, WV. He was charged with public intoxication, obstructing an officer, battery of an officer and disorderly conduct. All chargers were considered misdemeanors.

“We are aware of the situation, and the matter will be handled internally,” West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen said in a statement sent by email to TheDPost.com.

The DP goes on to say that Rose was kicked out of the bar earlier in the night, but returned and after the bouncer refused to let him back in he grabbed the bouncer’s face, pushing his aside. When officers were called to the scene, Rose was pushing others and when asked to stop he did not.

Rose at 6-foot-4, 234 pound had to be contained after the use of a taser.

“Officers grabbed him and attempted to place him into custody,” Officer C. D. Webster wrote in his report. “Mr. Rose was given several commands to stop resisting and he refused. Mr. Rose then struck [Officer K.] Murphey in the forehead and Mr. Rose was taken to the floor.”

“While on the floor, Mr. Rose continued to resist, and I told him that he would be tased if he did not stop resisting. After giving several more commands to stop resisting he was tased. Once the Taser was deployed, Mr. Rose became compliant and was placed into handcuffs without resistance.”

Rose posted a $600 bound. Mike Montoro, West Virginia football’s director of football communications said in an email that Rose could face student disciplinary actions.
