Ivan McLennan arrested for allegedly pointing airsoft gun at student

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

McLennan was arrested on Sunday after being warned by police three weeks ago for the same offense.

Junior linebacker Ivan McLennan was arrested on Sunday for unlawful handling of a weapon capable of producing bodily harm according to Jacob Thorpe of the Spokesman-Review.

A student called police saying they saw a man brandishing a firearm and pointing it at them as they drove through an apartment complex parking lot. Thorpe spoke with Pullman police spokesman Chris Tennant who says officers arrived to find McLennan and another person playing with Airsoft guns. Tennant said police arrested McLennan because they had contacted him three weeks ago for the same offense.

Unlawful handling of a weapon capable of producing bodily harm is a gross misdemeanor. If convicted, McLennan faces up to 364 days in jail and/or a $5,000 fine.

It remains to be seen whether McLennan will remain on the team or not but this crime does not violate one of Leach's three rails for immediate dismissal (drug use, stealing, assaulting a woman). Regardless, not a good start to the summer offseason for a player who was expected to battle for playing time this fall.
