Israel Troupe arrested

The charges are pretty serious, eight counts of felony fraud. Being held on $32,500 bond.

Troupe was drafted in the 31st round of the MLB draft by the Rockies in 2007. Given how his career at Georgia played out it always made me wonder if he should've gone to the pros out of high school. I don't recall his degree, but I remember he graduated a couple years ago before his last season in Athens.

Whoever the victims are I hope they're able to recover any losses. And for Troupe's sake I hope there's more to this that can exonerate him.

Emerson fills in the details.
