The official Fulmer Cup competition over at Everyday Should Be Saturday came to an end at 11:59pm eastern but not before Marshall wide receiver Troy Evans did what he could to give the Thundering Herd a late push. Evans was arrested for a series of armed robberies he allegedly committed over the weekend.

Evans has been hit with four counts of armed robbery and one count of wanton endangerment and was booked into the Western Regional jail on $250,000 bond on Tuesday night.

All four of the robberies took place within a ten-minute span early Sunday morning.

According to the police report, the first incident took place with two victims who claim they were approached by a man brandishing a handgun and demanding their wallets. Both victims turned their wallets over and fled after the gunman turned his weapon on a third victim who was walking on the sidewalk. The fourth victim, Dustin Manns, claims that the gunman approached him and asked for a cigarette, and after the victim told him he didn't smoke he had a gun stuck in his face and was told to turn over his wallet.

That's when things got a bit more interesting.

According to Manns, he refused to give up his wallet and was struck in the head with the gun. Then two Huntington police cars came down the street and the gunman fled and hid behind some bushes. While doing so, the gunman slipped causing the gun to go off, hence the wanton endangerment count. Mann said the gunman then got away.

Evans was expected to be a contributor for the Herd this fall, but as you'd expect, he's been suspended indefinitely.
