Washington State's offseason is off to a bad start with the arrest of wide receiver Gabe Marks early Saturday morning as first reported by the Spokesman-Review's Jacob Thorpe. Marks was arrested just after two in the morning by the Pullman Police Department for fourth degree assault, criminal trespass in the second degree, minor intoxicated in public and minor frequenting a tavern; all of which are misdemeanors. This is the second time Marks has had a run in with the law after getting a minor in possession charge last year as well.
We'll have to wait and see what charges, if any, the Whitman County prosecutors office decides to file to see how much trouble Marks could be in. For what it's worth, he does seem remorseful for what happened:
I am sorry to everyone who believed in me. My actions are my own and I have to live with it. Can't change the past. Can only look forward— VINO (@Gabe_Marks) February 9, 2014
None of Marks' alleged offenses violates one of head coach Mike Leach's three offenses for immediate dismissal (drugs, hitting a woman, stealing) so we'll have to wait and see if Leach dismisses Marks although I think it's unlikely. Either way, not a fantastic start to the offseason.
