BATON ROUGE, Louisiana — He’ll be swapping his playbook for a copy of the penal code.
An offensive lineman for LSU got busted burglarizing an apartment while wearing clothes bearing his own uniform number, cops said.
Adrian Magee, 20, is accused of making off with an Xbox gaming console, six Xbox games, Gucci flip flops, an Onyx bluetooth speaker, and $1,200 cash from the apartment.
He might have gotten away with it, had the 6-foot-5, 309-pound lineman not stuck his head in through the apartment doorway to ask the victim after he returned if he had been robbed, cops said.
The man whose apartment it was, being a huge LSU fan, immediately recognized Magee mainly because he had on a pair of shorts emblazoned with his uniform number, No. 73.
When the victim said he planned to review surveillance tape to see if he could identify who the culprit was, Magee left and soon returned with the stolen items and admitted he was responsible.
Magee, who played three games as a freshman last season, has been suspended indefinitely by the tea,.
