Arkansas TE Suspended For Belk Bowl For Shoplifting During Belk Store Shopping Spree
You know that little voice in your head that tells you not to do certain things because the outcome is not worth it? One Arkansas Razorbacks player should have listened to that voice when he decided to shoplift, even though he was getting free stuff already.
SEC Country has all the details:
“Arkansas senior tight end Jeremy Sprinkle’s suspension from the Belk Bowl is related to an alleged shoplifting incident, sources have confirmed to SEC Country.
Sprinkle was accused of attempting to shoplift items at the Belk department store at the SouthPark Mall in Charlotte on Tuesday, sources said. The Arkansas team was there as part of a function for the bowl.
Each player on both teams had 90 minutes to spend a $450 gift card at Belk on anything in the store. The players also each received a Fossil watch. Sources said Sprinkle attempted to take items worth more than the allotted cost available.”
Sprinkle had 33 catches and four touchdowns this season. This is certainly not the ideal way you want to end your college football career.
Fortunately for him, Charlotte Police did not dispatch any officers to the location.
