Rutgers CB Dailey Arrested While on Break

Manatee County police arrested Rutgers cornerback Darian Dailey Sunday morning for armed robber, according to multiple media reports out of Florida. Dailey was home on summer break before classes resume Tuesday. Police booked Dailey and one accomplice Sunday morning on a felony charge at Manatee County Jail.

Rutgers cornerback Darian Dailey and accomplice Trazelle Johnson reportedly committed armed robbery Sunday morning. Sarasota County police detectives charged both with armed robbery with a firearm after the Sunday morning incident.

The Sarasota Herald Tribune described the incident as, " Shortly before 2 a.m. today, a Sarasota man rode a bicycle in the 1600 block of University Parkway. Two black males in a vehicle stopped and confronted him with a handgun. The black males demanded money and left in the vehicle. The uninjured victim gave deputies the tag information, which deputies passed on to area law enforcement agencies.

Manatee County deputies reportedly located the vehicle and two suspects, 19-year-old Darian J. Dailey of Bradenton and 20-year-old Trazelle A. Johnson of Sarasota. The victim reportedly positively identified the suspects.

Rutgers coach Kyle Flood released a statement Sunday afternoon, saying "We are aware of the situation and are gathering facts. Once those facts are gathered, we will take the appropriate action."

Dailey projected as a first-team cornerback after a strong spring practice for the Scarlet Knights. He red-shirted last season before he started the spring alongside sophomore Dre Boggs.
