Tulane's Mackey Busted For Armed Robbery

Tulane University LB Trent Mackey was arrested last night for armed robbery...

Fox8 has the press release from NOPD...

In part:

Robert Murray 19, and Trent Mackey 22, were booked today with Armed Robbery. The Armed Robbery took place July 12, 2012 at approximately 1:35 P.M., inside of a home in the 600 block ofBroadway Street.

New Orleans Police and Tulane Police Detectives worked in conjunction following up on witness statements and leads on the suspects for approximately one month. During that time the detectives gathered the name of Robert Murray 19, who was possibly one of the suspects involved in the Armed Robbery. During the course of the investigation, the detectives positively identified Murray as one of the suspects responsible for the Armed Robbery.

Today, Murray was arrested and agreed to a taped statement. In the statement, Murray implicated Trent Mackey as the person who orchestrated the incident. The detectives investigated the information and arrested Trent Mackey. Mackey did not cooperate with the detectives and elected to claim his 5th Amendments Rights.

So, one of the favorites for Defensive Player of the Year in Conference USA, allegedly was part to the robbery and acted like a victim when it is thought he was one of the orchestrators of the break-in.

Mackey talked to Ken Trahan a few days ago at Media Day, actually, to discuss football...
