PULLMAN, Wash. -- Washington State University leaders and the Pullman Chief of Police met Thursday morning to discuss recent events involving WSU student-athletes, students and local law enforcement.
Linebacker Logan Tago was arrested for assault and robbery, and back in August, safety Shalom Luani was arrested for assault. Pullman police said he hit another WSU student after an argument over a pizza order. Police are also still investigating a fight at a house party in late July where football players were involved.
President Kirk Schulz, Director of Athletics Bill Moos and Chief Gary Jenkins all attended the meeting.
“The meeting was a chance for all three of us to come together face-to-face and discuss these recent incidents,” said Moos. “It was an opportunity to express thoughts, on all sides, and gain a better understanding of processes and procedures in incidents like we have seen recently.”
Moos said the university respects the task law enforcement faces and will make every effort to fully cooperate with local authorities.
“I am encouraged as we move forward that we will continue to have an open line of communication and allow the full legal process to play out to ensure fairness is given to all involved,” Moss added.
