It’s been just 11 days since WSU quarterback Jayden de Laura was suspended by the football program after a DUI arrest in Pullman. Now, less than two weeks later, Nick Rolovich and the Cougars are dealing with a second alcohol-related arrested.
According to Theo Lawson of the Spokesman Review, Washington State freshman defensive back Ayden Hector has also been suspended by the program after his arrest. The freshman was reportedly arrested by Pullman Police after trying to buy alcohol at the Dissmore’s IGA grocery store earlier this month with a fake ID.
According to police reports, Hector was attempting to buy alcohol for a friend’s birthday party with a fake ID. Pullman Police responded and cited Hector for “displaying/possessing fraudulent identification and minor in possession.” Lawson confirmed that Hector is scheduled to appear in Whitman County Court on March 4.
Quick clarification: Hector left Dissmore's and agreed to meet with police later that night at the Pullman Residence Inn. That's where he was arrested, rather than at Dissmore's.— Theo Lawson (@TheoLawson_SR) February 17, 2021
Lawson also confirmed through the WSU athletic department that Hector has been suspended by the program, but it’s unclear how long he will miss team activities.
Hector started at safety during WSU’s season opener at Oregon State last year, but made his biggest impact the next week against Oregon at home. Hector took home freshman of the week honors from the Pac-12 after recording two fumble recoveries and an interception — all in the first 20 minutes — during WSU’s 43-29 loss to the Ducks.
The team is currently in the middle of their winter conditioning session. They’ve yet to announce a schedule for spring camp, but practices traditionally start in the middle of March. We’ll have to wait and see if Hector will be available when spring practices get under way.
