Two WSU football players arrested for shoplifting

PULLMAN, Wash. - Two Washington State Cougar football players have been arrested after allegedly attempting to steal over $200 worth of merchandise from Walmart. 

18-year-old Zaire Webb and 18-year-old Anthony White Jr. were detained by Walmart staff around 10 p.m. Wednesday. The two allegedly went through the self-checkout without paying for all of the items in their cart. Pullman police officers say Webb and White Jr. tried to steal $225 worth of merchandise.

Officers arrested, cited, and released Webb and White Jr. for misdemeanor third degree theft. 

Webb, a defensive back, has appeared in all five games this year for the Cougars. White Jr., a wide receiver, has not yet taken the field.

Officers are reviewing the case before sending a charge recommendation to the Whitman County Prosecutor's Office. 

As of 4:30 Thursday afternoon, Webb and White Jr. are no longer listed on WSU's online football roster.
