Fifth-year senior linebacker Audie Attar, who was slated to start at weakside linebacker next season, was dismissed from the team by Head Coach Bob Toledo Wednesday.

According to the L.A. Times, Toledo dismissed Attar for an off-campus fight. Reportedly, University police are investigating the incident.

"I feel this decision is in the best interests of the program," Bob Toledo said in a prepared statement. "It's unfortunate I have to take this action, but this is not the first time Audie has violated team policy."

Attar was involved in another fight-related incident at UCLA, being suspended during his sophomore year for fighting with another student off-campus.

Attar told the L.A. Times that he doesn't think the dismissal is deserved. "I don't agree with the decision," he said. "I feel it was premature and I would hope that Coach Toledo would consider an appeal."
