KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - A fourth Tennessee football player has been charged with breaking the law in the last two weeks.
Nyshier Oliver is facing a charge of shoplifting. The 18-year-old freshman defensive back was cited at 1:45 p.m. on Nov. 7, a few hours before the Volunteers hosted Memphis. He is scheduled to make a court appearance on Nov. 23.
According to court records, the Jersey City, N.J., native was spotted allegedly concealing a $110 brown polo shirt from Dillards in a shopping bag.
The court records were released Tuesday, a day after coach Lane
Kiffin dismissed two of three players charged with attempted armed
robbery. Kiffin says he will run a clean program.
