Tech football player arrested
Tech Coach Derek Dooley announced Melancon was dismissed from the team today.
Tech Police Chief Randal Hermes said Melancon first crossed paths with the department in November while in possession of a stolen laptop computer. Melancon is a resident of Hutcheson Hall, and the computer had been taken from a room in that residence hall.
“At that time, he provided the officer with information that he’d purchased it from someone he found in the parking lot,” Hermes said.
