Suspended Utah senior wide receiver Cory Butler-Byrd is facing a charge of criminal mischief.
SALT LAKE CITY—As reported first by Kyle Goon and Matthew Piper of the Salt Lake Tribune, suspended Utah senior wide receiver Cory Butler-Byrd is facing a charge of criminal mischief after allegedly damaging a University of Utah police car and patrol building, according to court documents filed in the Utah Third District Court.
Damage estimations for the alleged incident exceed $500, equalling a Class A misdemeanor, carrying a maximum of one year in jail, according to Utah State Code. Butler-Byrd was released afterward by police.
Butler-Byrd was suspended indefinitely last week for “personal issues,” as described by head coach Kyle Whittingham. He caught one pass for a touchdown in 2015 in splitting time between wide receiver, cornerback, and kick returner. He was expected to compete for a starting position for the Utes, now full-time at receiver.
