West Virginia University football coach Dana Holgorsen has announced that redshirt sophomore Branko Busick has been dismissed from the Mountaineer football program for violation of team rules.
Earlier it was reported that Busick is free on $25,000 bond after being charged with an armed robbery at a Morgantown apartment building.
According to the Associated Press, Morgantown police say the 20-year-old Steubenville, Ohio, native was arrested Monday evening.
He was arraigned Tuesday before Monongalia County Magistrate Hershel Mullins in a videoconference with the North Central Regional Jail.
A court official says Busick's father posted a property bond. Nick Busick is the former WWF wrestler Big Bully Busick.
Court records show that Branko Busick does not yet have an attorney.
His preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 1 before Magistrate Jim Nabors.
Police say a man reported that he was struck repeatedly with a gun after he told his assailant he had no money.
Branko Busick was listed on the most recent WVU depth chart No. 2 at middle linebacker behind Najee Goode.
WVU athletic officials said no further comment will be made.
