West Virginia football player Courtney Stuart has been arrested on a fugitive from justice warrant filed in Arizona in a stolen property case.
Monongalia County Magistrate Court records show Stuart was arrested Monday. He remained held without bond Wednesday at the North Central Regional Jail.
Stuart's attorney, Corwin Townsend of Phoenix, said Stuart was indicted last month in Maricopa County, Arizona on charges of burglary and trafficking in stolen property. He says Stuart is accused of taking CDs and a laptop at a party.
Townsend says Stuart, who is from Chandler, Arizona, has waived extradition in order to fight the charges.
WVU football spokesman Mike Montoro says coach Bill Stewart is still gathering the facts. Stuart has primarily played on special teams in his two seasons.
