USC football player arrested, charged with five felony counts

A tight end for the Southern California football team has been arrested and charged with five felony counts on suspicion of receiving stolen property.

Junior Pomee, a redshirt freshman for the Trojans, was arrested on suspicion of possessing stolen goods by campus officials on Jan. 29. On Jan. 31, Pomee was subsequently charged with burglary, grand theft, and three counts of receiving stolen goods including an iPad, an iPad mini and an iPhone 5.

According to the police report, Pomee allegedly became "combative" when confronted by officers and had to be "physically subdued" before being handcuffed.

Pomee has since pleaded not guilty and is slated to appear in court again on Feb. 15. He was released from jail on $110,000 bail.

USC head coach Lane Kiffin is aware of the situation and has removed from Pomee from all team activities until further notice.

Pomee played in every game for the Trojans last season.
