Sed Ellis, who was listed as a co-starter at outside linebacker following spring practice, and Christopher Loving, a backup tight end, were charged with theft in connection with an incident involving a pair of televisions at a Denton Walmart on Monday.
"A Walmart employee said he observed three people acting suspiciously in the electronics department June 21, before selecting two televisions — a 32-inch Samsung and a 24-inch Sanyo — and putting them in a shopping cart, according to an arrest affidavit."
Ellis and Loving, police said, left the store through the garden center without paying for the televisions. One member of the group pushed a cart out of the store with the 32-inch TV before a second man pushed out a separate cart with the 24-inch set, according to the report.
Ellis came out of spring practice listed as a co-starter linebacker This spring Dan McCarney mentioned Ellis among several other linebackers he expected to emerge in 2014 and fill the void left by the graduation of starters Will Wright and Zach Orr.
Dan McCarney has announced that he is suspending Ellis and Loving indefinitely.
