LJS Reports Arrests of Husker Football Players Boaz Joseph and Jariah Tolbert

Eric Francis

The Lincoln Journal-Star is reporting that redshirt freshman defensive back Boaz Joseph and incoming freshman wide receiver Jariah Tolbert were arrested in separate incidents last week.

Joseph, who redshirted in 2013, was arrested after being observed stealing a "bait bike" by campus police.  The bike was equipped with a GPS transmitter to allow police to track bicycle thieves. Police were able to use the GPS to track down and cite Joseph last weekend.

Sound familiar? Unfortunately yes.  Three weeks earlier, Nebraska middle linebacker Josh Banderas was arrested for stealing bicycles on campus after the spring semester ended. The felony charges were dismissed after Banderas and track athlete Lucas Kiefer entered a pre-trial diversion program. Sadly, Joseph apparently didn't learn any lessons from that escapade.

Early Thursday morning, campus police received a report of someone smoking marijuana at 19th and Vine Street. When officers arrived, the smoker took off running, but was apprehended. Tolbert was arrested for obstruction , possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of less than an ounce of marijuana. Tolbert recently arrived in Lincoln after committing to the Huskers in January.
