    Post DMR: Information on Mike Taylor

    DMR has a story on it now...

    Link

    Mike Taylor's future as a member of the Iowa State basketball team is under review after he was cited by Ames police for fifth degree theft on Saturday.

    Taylor, the Cyclones' most valuable player last season, was previously arrested March 19 for fourth degree criminal mischief stemming from an incident Feb. 4.

    Taylor has been suspended from the Iowa State team since that March 19 arrest, which violated Iowa State's student-athlete conduct code.

    "I am in the process of collecting more information, and the latest citation will be part of an exhaustive review of Mike's personal conduct,'' Iowa State basketball coach Greg McDermott said in a statement released Tuesday.

    "I will consider the evidence that is available to me and determine a course of action that is suitable for Mike and our basketball team.''

    Taylor, 21, from Milwaukee, Wis., who led Iowa State in scoring last season at 16 points a game, was ticketed Saturday after shoplifting an item worth $11.06 from the Cub Foods store at 3121 Grand Ave. in Ames.

    Taylor is accused of taking a box of cold medicine, according to Sgt. Mark Wheeler of the Ames Police Department. Taylor has a court date scheduled for Friday at 8:30 a.m.

    Taylor's citation for fifth degree theft came one day after he submitted a written plea of innocence to the fourth degree criminal mischief charges.

    That arrest came out of an incident Feb. 4 at an apartment complex on Frederiksen Court in Ames.

    According to police records, Taylor discharged a fire extinguisher, damaged a light cover, pulled down an exit sign and poured liquid on a wall. The incident, which caused more than $200 damage, is classified as a serious misdemeanor.

    According to the Iowa Code, Taylor's punishment could include a fine between $250 and $1,500 if found guilty. Taylor has a June 7 trail date on those charges.

    Cold medicine? You have to be kidding me. Must have been a real bad cold.

    What's worse? Committing a serious theft or risking your collegiate basketball career for something that costs 11 dollars?

    I know everyone will want a decision from Greg soon on Taylor's status, but I will be surprised if we hear anything before the June 7th court action is done. To be safe Greg really should wait until then.

    Re: DMR: Information on Mike Taylor

    Why the hell would you steal cold medicine? Either he was really sick or he was making meth or some other drug. Whats worse, cold medicine or $4 and a cell phone?

    Whatever, Good bye Mike Taylor.

    Re: DMR: Information on Mike Taylor

    If the views that Mike has an alcohol problem are true (DUI from last year and the Feb. 4th incident), I wonder if the cold medicine theft is linked to that.

    I'll go with the 4 bucks and the phone, unless Mike jacked the checkout clerk.

    Good point, and I agree.

    In the event that Greg feels we'd need another guard should Mike be removed from the team, we could find out the verdict via recruiting info before something official from ISU on Mike.

    If there is any doubt that Mike won't be with us in '07 and G-Mac feels we need a guard to fill that spot, it would be tough for him to wait until June.

    Who knows what will happen, this situation just stinks.

    We won't probably fill Mikes Spot. Wes Eichmier (SP) is taking that Scholly. We also have enough shooting guards comming in.

    I think that a vast majority of college kids could be accused of having an alcohol problem, if two alcohol-related incidents constitute alcoholism. I know people who have only drank a handful of times, but were dumb enough to drive during those - their problem wasn't with alcohol, it was with decision-making and their personal sense of responsibility.

    Cloned4Life had a great post HERE about just waiting until we get all of the info instead of speculating too much. Not a personal attack on anyone - we just don't want the rumors and pointing fingers to take over the actual story.

    Cold medicine? I thought Kenny Pratt drank all of the Nyquil in Ames.
