Stepfather says altercation with Laremy Tunsil happened after he was caught riding around with agents

635525231058447314-tcl-6h191uncr4110ts3up5c-originalWhen the news broke that Ole Miss OL Laremy Tunsil was arrested for hitting his stepfather, many knew that it was more to the story. Tunsil, who is considered one of the top prospects for the 2016 NFL Draft is out of jail, but his stepfather spilled the beans on how the altercation started. Lindsay Miller told Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department deputies that he and Tunsil’s mother got into an argument after the star lineman was caught riding around with agents.

 

Lindsey Miller, the stepfather of Ole Miss left tackle Laremy Tunsil, told Lafayette County Sheriff’s Department deputies on Thursday night that he and Tunsil’s mother were arguing about Tunsil “riding around with football agents” at the time of the incident that led to Tunsil’s arrest, according to a police report obtained by The Clarion-Ledger on Tuesday morning.

According to the police report, when deputy Rudy Howell arrived at the scene at 7:19 p.m. Thursday night, Miller was “very excited” and told Howell that “Tunsil and the agents” left in a yellow convertible.

Tunsil’s voluntary statements were not attached to the report obtained by The Clarion-Ledger.

Per NCAA rules, Tunsil would be allowed to speak with certified NFL agents and still maintain his eligibility as long as he doesn’t accept any impermissible benefits or sign.

Tunsil needs to be real careful now that it is known that he is talking to agents. I’m sure the NCAA will be looking at him very closely as the season draws closer.
