3 accused of taking John Deere vehicle from LSU locker room

February 25, 2019

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Louisiana State University police say three men stole a John Deere utility vehicle from the football locker room and took it for an early-morning drunken joyride.

Citing an arrest report, The Advocate reports security video from early Sunday showed the three men driving the vehicle on campus.

When stopped, the men refused to tell police where they got the vehicle, but it had an LSU property tag and markings confirming it belonged to football equipment staff. The Gator XUV is valued at more than $10,000.

After agreeing to a field sobriety test, 21-year-old Daryl Lally was charged with driving while intoxicated. Lally, 22-year-old Tyler Jones and 22-year-old Robert Nicklas are charged with theft of a motor vehicle.

It’s unclear whether they have lawyers and whether they’re enrolled at LSU.
