Miami Hurricanes’ sophomore cornerback Thomas Finnie has been suspended indefinitely after being arrested and charged with grand theft.
Finnie, a former standout at Miami Central High School, is charged with occupied burglary and grand theft. He was taken to a Miami-Dade jail by University of Miami police personnel. He was arrested six days after police first jailed Del’Neco Streeter, 21, of Miami Beach, for trying to sell the stolen laptop to its owner for $1,000.
Finnie played in 12 games and had 30 tackles.
Can we bring back the real Miami?
Miami is 7 – 5 this season under Al Golden and has decided to forgo any bowl invitation.
“I’m clearly disappointed,” said Miami coach Al Golden, who university officials said was not involved in the choice to go forward with the ban. “I believe it’s the right decision and I’m 100 percent behind the decision. … We’re one step closer to putting these issues behind us.”
