9.23.17 LSU vs Syracuse

LSU freshman linebacker Tyler Taylor (24) attempts to tackle on Saturday, Sept. 23, 2017, during the LSU game against Syracuse.

LSU sophomore linebacker Tyler Taylor has been suspended indefinitely from the team following a May arrest for burglary of a pawn shop.

Taylor was reportedly the getaway driver of three other men who stole multiple firearms from the pawn shop, according to an incident report of the Cumming Police Department.  

The three counts that Taylor faces are all felonies for the eight shotguns, three rifles and semi-automatic rifle that were stolen.

Taylor was in line to be a major contributor to the linebacking corps this season after a freshman season that included 32 total tackles and 1.5 sacks.

LSU officials were notified on Wednesday and handed down the suspension immediately.
