West Virginia starting DL Kyle Rose arrested for incident at a bar

West Virginia is the latest school to have to deal with an important player getting arrested this offseason.

Starting defensive lineman Kyle Rose was arrested for his role in an incident at a Morgantown bar this weekend. According to the Dominion Post, Rose attempted to go into a bar at 2:30 a.m. causing a disturbance. When police arrived at the scene he he resisted their attempt to take him into custody and hit an officer in the forehead. When they got him to the ground, the report says he continued to resist and was tasered.

“We are aware of the situation, and the matter will be handled internally,” Dana Holgorsen told the Dominion-Post, and West Virginia said Rose “could face student disciplinary action.”

Rose was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct, obstructing an officer and battery on an office and was released on $600 bond.

Last season, Rose was the Mountaineers most productive defensive lineman with 35 tackles and has started 20 games in his career.
