A&M Defense Loses Two More Due to Arrests

This past weekend, Victor Davis was arrested for shoplifting at Kohl’s. If you want a bit of comedy to escape this offseason from hell, head on over to Good Bull Hunting as they investigate the different Aggie gear that Davis may have been smuggling.

Per A&M policy, Victor Davis is suspended indefinitely. There is a good possibility that he may work his way back onto the team as this is only his first offense. Davis is a 4-star cornerback that was recruited in 2013 and redshirted last season.

In addition to this expected news, Aggie fans also learned that defensive lineman Gavin Stansbury has left the team citing ‘personal reasons.’ It is expected that Stansbury is tending to his offseason arrest. He was charged with misdemeanor assault where he is accused of punching a Rice student at an on campus dormitory party.

Stansbury was a crucial player in last year’s defense and was expected to anchor a very young defensive line this upcoming season. He played in 10 games in 2013 and recorded 47 tackles and 3 sacks. His steady presence will be missed this season. In a statement from Sumlin,

While we will miss Gavin being a part of our program, there is more to life than football. We wish him the best as he focuses on the personal issues ahead of him.

This is the seventh Aggie to be arrested this offseason, five of which are defensive players. Following Darian Claiborne and Isaiah Golden dismissals, Stansbury makes it three starters from 2013 that are no longer with the team. In addition, safety Kameron Miles was not arrested but still dismissed from the team after allegedly stealing from teammates. He was expected to push Howard Matthews and Floyd Raven for playing time and a possible starting spot.
