LSU suspended linebacker Tyler Taylor after learning he was arrested in May for reportedly serving as the getaway driver in the burglary of a Georgia pawn shop, according to arrest documents obtained Wednesday by The Advocate.

LSU athletic officials confirmed they learned of Taylor’s case Wednesday and that he is suspended indefinitely for violation of team rules.

An incident report by the Cumming Police Department said that in the early morning of Jan. 8, three men and a juvenile broke into a pawn shop in Cumming, Georgia, stole several firearms and fled the scene in a vehicle driven by Taylor.
