Report: Forsythe, McCune Arrested

Pat Forsythe

West Virginia basketball player Pat Forsythe and one of his former teammates, Tommie McCune, were arrested Thursday night in Morgantown and charged with petit larceny, according to a report in the Dominion Post.

Citing a police report, the newspaper reported both took items from a wallet found by Forsythe's roommate, including debit cards and $8 cash.

Forsythe reportedly gave the debit cards to McCune, who handed one of them to a third party. They bought food for themselves and WVU teammate Aric Dickerson (who was not charged) at a restaurant called Qdoba,

McCune later charged a total of almost $150 to the cards at a pair of Morgantown bars.

"We are aware of the situation," coach Bob Huggins said in a statement released by the school and obtained by the Dominion Post. "We will let the judicial process take its course and the matter will be handled internally."

McCune, a native of Saginaw, Mich., left the team just before the NCAA Tournament as the program announced his intention to transfer. He played in 13 games as a true freshman in 2011-12. In August, he was accused of shoplifting from a Wal-Mart store in Michigan. He later pled guilty to that charge.

Forsythe had an injury-plagued true freshman season, sitting out after back spasms became a recurring issue. He played in seven games, and the school filed for a medical redshirt for Forsythe, which would allow him to return as a freshman in 2012-13.
