HONOLULU – Former Nevada linebacker Andre Davis is out on bail, three days after he was arrested for allegedly stealing more than $11 hundred worth of merchandise from a Waikiki Duty Free Store, according to a Honolulu television station.

Davis allegedly stole a designer watch; sunglasses; and at least two wallets, according to KITV in Honolulu.

He will appear at a plea hearing on Jan. 25. The 20-year-old will reportedly not fight the charges.

Freshman safety Michael "Duke" Williams, a Hug High graduate, was also suspended for the game. He was sent home earlier this week and could face further discipline after he meets with the athletic staff.

Designer sunglasses were reportedly recovered from Williams' hotel room.

This is the second time Williams has been suspended for a game in the last four-and-a-half weeks.

On Nov. 17, Williams was suspended for the Wolf Pack's game at New Mexico State after he was arrested for being a minor in possession of alcohol.

“I have dismissed Andre Davis from the program immediately and I have suspended Duke Williams for the bowl game,” head coach Chris Ault said in a statement released late Tuesday night. “I want to apologize to the Sheraton Hawaii Bowl, the people of Hawaii and our fans for their conduct.”

“This swift action taken by Coach Ault is indicative of his commitment to doing things the right way,” athletics director Cary Groth said. “This behavior is not representative of the beliefs and ideals of the Nevada football program, the Wolf Pack athletics department or the University of Nevada.”

Last week, Nevada's leading rusher Vai Taua was ruled academically ineligible for Thursday's game.
