Vandy’s Simmons Charged With Burglary And Robbery

Now here’s one you don’t see everyday…

Vanderbilt sophomore safety Andre Simmons has been arrested and charged with felony counts of burglary and robbery.  He has also been suspended indefinitely from James Franklin’s team.

Jeff Lockridge of The Tennessean provides the details:


“According to a Davidson County affidavit, two black males — one armed with a handgun — entered Lupton Hall on Tuesday and took $5,000 from a safe in the room of Zachary Abelman, a sophomore forward on the school’s club ice hockey team.  A fight ensued and Abelman was struck in the head with the gun.

One suspect ran out with the money while Simmons, 19, stayed behind to keep Abelman in the room.  Once Simmons left, he was chased by Abelman and others to the Terrace Place Garage.  Metro Police were called and took Simmons into custody there.”


If were to list all of the ways in which Simmons’ alleged actions were stupid this post would be 15 paragraphs long.

Incredible.

This is Vandy, all right - even our burglars make National Honor Society. =P

Armed robbery? Maybe Vandy really is ready to compete with UT...

I never heard of this poor guy before this incident. He wasn't even on the depth chart. You would think a member of the National Honor Society in high school would be capable of better decision-making. I guess now we know why he wasn't playing...

why did a kid have 5,000 cash in his room? Sounds like there may be drugs or something else happening as well.

This is an embarrassment to Vanderbilt and this kid's family. He was given an incredible opportunity to play in the SEC and earn a degree from Vanderbilt, but has most likely thrown it all away for a few grand. "Would you rather have $5,000 today or $50,000 a year for the next 40 years of your life? The $5,000 would be lovely, thank you very much." Stupid.

You're right. The issue isn't the armed robbery, it's the remote possibility that the victim had an unusually large sum of money in his room, and the only possible explanation is that he did something wrong as well. Please tell me you're not involved in the legal system.

50,000 a year for life for a Vandy grad - even a football player - would be pathetic. Is it possible to survive on that little?
