BATON ROUGE, La. -- LSU spokesman Michael Bonnette says freshman football player Jeryl Brazil, who's had several run-ins with the law since September, has been dismissed from the team by coach Les Miles.

Bonnette's statement regarding Brazil on Thursday comes as Baton Rouge police say the 19-year-old former player is wanted on felony charges in connection with a burglary near campus. Brazil is accused of entering an unlocked apartment where two people were asleep and stealing $47.

Brazil had already received two misdemeanor summonses, one for disturbing the peace by fighting and one for simple battery of a female student.

Miles suspended Brazil in October, after the second incident, and never reinstated him.

Brazil was listed as a defensive back but saw his only action on offense, with two carries for 10 yards.
