It appears that college football players are unable to keep themselves out of trouble this offseason and Akron Zips defensive back Seth Cunningham is the latest player to find himself behind bars. Cunningham allegedly robbing a tobacco pipe store at gunpoint. According to FOX8-TV, the senior is facing a charge of aggravated robbery.
From the report:
Seth Cunningham, 21, entered the 24-hour store on Pearl Road Monday and waved a 9mm handgun in the air. He stole a water pipe worth $447 before taking off.
No one was injured.
He admitted to the robbery and was taken to the Medina County Jail where he posted a $30,000 bond and was released. Cunningham is charged with aggravated robbery.
As you would expect, discipline is coming Cunningham’s way and it begins with an indefinite suspension.
Greg Bach of the Akron Athletic Department said that the suspension is pending the outcome of the case. While you should presume someone innocent until proven guilty, Cunningham admitted to the robbery, so it isn’t looking good for his future on the streets or on the football field.
That was one costly bong.
