BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) -LSU coach Les Miles dismissed three football players Thursday for unbecoming conduct.
LSU refused to say what freshman defensive back Troy Giddens, freshman offensive lineman Zhamal Thomas and sophomore offensive lineman Kyle Anderson had done to be thrown off the team, but all three recently had problems with the law.
Giddens and Thomas were arrested last week, accused of breaking into a campus apartment, stealing a backpack that held money and credit cards, and using a stolen credit card to buy more than $200 worth of items online. Each player was booked with simple burglary of an inhabited dwelling and identity theft.
Anderson was booked early Monday with second-degree battery after getting into a fight at a popular campus hangout.
``There is a standard that we insist upon with members of our football team when representing this university, our community and the state of Louisiana,'' Miles said in a statement. ``When that standard isn't met some adjustments must be made.''
