Dylan Donohue, a nose tackle for Eastern Washington University, has been thrown off the team following his arrest in suspicion of domestic violence, according to Spokesman-Review.
The Spokesman-Review said it reviewed police records that allege Donohue forced his way into his estranged girlfriend’s apartment. Witnesses told police Donohue was shouting, swearing and waving around a steak knife. But, according to the police account, Donohue dropped the knife and left after his firmer girlfriend said she had called police.
Police, in their report, say Donohue told him he was upset because the woman had spoken to another man.
Head coach Aaron Best told the Spokesman-Review that he though it best to part ways with Donohue. “We take all arrests seriously,” Best said.
Best was arrested on suspicion of domestic violence harassment-threats to kill and released on his own recognizance. If he’s charged, both would be felonies.
Donohue, according to the Eastern Washington website, is 6-foot, 255 pound nose tackle who played in 13 games in a reserve role last season.
