College Football Player Arrested in Attempted Double-Murder Scheme

Another football player associated with Rutgers University is in trouble with the law.

Junior linebacker Izaia Bullock was charged Tuesday with two counts of first-degree attempted murder and two counts of first-degree conspiracy to commit murder, according to the Middlesex County, New Jersey, Prosecutor’s Office.

On Oct. 29, the county prosecutor’s office, along with the Rutgers police, determined that Bullock, 22, “initiated a plot to murder the family members of an acquaintance.”

The intended victims are not affiliated with the university.


Bullock was dismissed from the team.

He is being held at the Middlesex County Adult Correction Center pending a court appearance, the county prosecutor’s office said.

The investigation is active and ongoing. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Lauren Tredo of the Rutgers University Police Department at (848) 932-8025 or Detective Michael Connelly of the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office at (732) 745-3254.

Rutgers coach Chris Ash declined to comment on the matter, NJ.com reported.

Bullock, from Piscataway, New Jersey, made the team in September 2017 as a walk-on, according to NJ.com.

He previously played for Gattaca Football Club, a private junior college club football program in New Jersey, the report said.
