Florida State WR Da’Vante Phillips Facing 5 Felony Charges, Suspended Indefinitely
With just under a month before the team gets set to play football, the Florida State Seminoles have an issue on their hands.
Seminoles WR Da’Vante Phillips, who was slated to have a bunch of playing time this year, probably won’t see the field this year after he was arrested on four counts of cashing or depositing items with intent to defraud, and one charge of grand theft.
Back in January, Phillips reportedly purchased four money orders worth $485.89 and altered them to read $700 each.
FSU has since announced he has been suspended indefinitely. Head coach Jimbo Fisher refused to comment any further on the matter.
Phillips, a four-star prospect out of Miami in the class of 2015, caught just four passes last year and has just five career catches in two seasons for 30 yards and no touchdowns.
The #3 ranked Florida State Seminoles open their 2017 season Sept. 2 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium against No. 1 Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Kickoff Game.
