Redshirt quarterback arrested

POSTED NOV. 3 AT 8:30 P.M.

Robert Marve, a redshirt freshman quarterback, was arrested after running from a police officer in Coconut Grove on Halloween, The Miami Herald reported Saturday.

An officer spotted Marve breaking the rear-view mirror of a car and, when the officer approached, Marve ran away, The Herald reported. The officer later caught Marve.

The freshman was later charged with two misdemeanors: resisting arrest without violence and criminal mischief, according to The Herald.

“He was apparently upset about something, we don’t know what,” Miami Police spokesperson Delrish Moss told The Herald.

According to a statement released by the university, Marve met with Head Coach Randy Shannon to discuss the situation. Shannon, who has been a strict disciplinarian with the team, has yet to release any information as to what actions he will take.

Marve, a Plant High School graduate, was rated No. 14 among national quarterbacks by in 2006. He was injured in the off-season when a car, driven by another Miami Hurricane football player, rolled several times on Alligator Alley.
