Cory Butler-Byrd, a senior wide receiver for the Utah Utes, was suspended last week for “personal issues.” On Tuesday it came out that Butler-Byrd had been charged with criminal mischief stemming from a weird incident where police found him throwing things… at the police station. Via The Salt Lake Tribune:
After arresting him, the officers saw that one of the building’s windows was broken. Butler-Byrd told them he had thrown a piece of wood at the window, which shattered it.
One of the officers also noticed that the rear window of his patrol car had been shattered, and the roof had a “large dent” in it. Video footage showed a man jumping on the roof of the car — something police said Butler-Byrd also admitted to. The officers released Butler-Byrd afterward. The damage is estimated to exceed $500.
Butler-Byrd was expected to compete for a starting spot this season.
