EUGENE, Ore. - Coach Chip Kelly indefinitely suspended Duck linebacker Kiko Alonso after sheriff's deputies arrested the Los Gatos, Calif., junior early Sunday morning and jailed him for investigation of felony burglary.
Alonso was booked on charges of felony first degree burglary, second degree criminal mischief and first degree criminal trespassing, said Lt. Byron Trapp with the Lane County Sheriff's Office.
Trapp said a Hilliard Lane resident in the River Road neighborhood called 911 at 1:18 a.m. Sunday saying an unknown white man in his 20s was at her door trying to break in.
The woman fled her home. When deputies arrived, they found a broken door and broken glass - and Alonso inside the home, Trapp said.
Alonso did not immediately cooperate with deputies, who described his demeanor as "disoriented and confused," Trapp said.
Alonso faces arraignment May 17 at 8:30 a.m.
Press release from the University of Oregon
University of Oregon linebacker Kiko Alonso has been suspended indefinitely from the Ducks’ football program following his arrest Sunday morning, according to the school’s head football coach Chip Kelly.
The Los Gatos, Calif., junior sat out the 2010 season due to a suspension handed down by Kelly after being cited for driving under the influence of intoxicants last winter before he suffered a season-ending injury last spring.
Athletics department officials are still attempting to gather more details surrounding the incident and will offer no further comment while the case is pending.
