Bowling Green’s senior wide receiver Datrin Guyton has been effectively dismissed from the program, according to the Toledo Blade’s John Wagner.

Guyton was convicted of stealing a woman’s bag at a Stop & Go gas station in Northwood, Ohio, on May 23, resulting in a second-degree felony for robbery. More information on the criminal charges can be found in the link above.

Guyton “has broken terms of the zero-tolerance policy he was already under based on a violation of team rules,” Bowling Green head coach Mike Jinks said, according to Wagner.

The receiver was entering his senior campaign and his second season with Bowling Green, after previously being dismissed by Oregon State in November 2015 for a violation of team rules. Following the transfer, Guyton played in 11 contests last year and finished third on the team in both receptions (31) and receiving yards (585). He was projected to start for the Falcons alongside returning senior Scott Miller next season prior to the arrest.

Bowling Green acted quickly to this report and removed him from the roster on Wednesday after the original story broke on Sunday, June 3.
