PULLMAN, Wash. (AP) — Washington State has dismissed wide receiver Drew Loftus from the football team after his arrest for allegedly trying to steal a couple of bottles of alcohol from a grocery store.

Pullman police say Loftus tried to leave the Dissmore's IGA store early Friday morning with two bottles of tequila shoved into the waistband of his sweatpants.

The Spokesman-Review reported Tuesday that he was arrested on misdemeanor counts of theft, minor in possession of alcohol and minor intoxicated in public.

The 19-year-old Loftus caught one pass for 37 yards last year as a freshman.
