A quarterback for Murray State University could be facing jail time for trying to intercept a policeman’s ticket book.
UPPER CUMBERLAND DAILY NEWS reports that sophomore QB Jeff Ehrhardt has been charged with robbery after allegedly bumping a campus cop from behind and stealing the book.
Although he wasn’t physically arrested, Ehrhardt was given a citation for 2nd degree robbery, which could lead up to a $10,000 fine and up to 10 years in prison. Why would Jeff attempt such a stunt?
In a sworn statement, Ehrhardt admitted that he pulled off the ticket book theft because someone else “bet $20 he wouldn’t do it.”
$20 for $10,000? Obviously, Jeff isn’t studying economics at MSU. Ehrhardt’s court case is scheduled for April 29.
And it’s not the only bad news to hit the Murray, KY, campus. WPSD-TV reports that horses for the school’s equestrian team are under quarantine after one stallion was found to have Equine Herpes Virus.
Boy, when it rains, it pours.
