Zayd Issah in More Legal Trouble

Zayd Issah, a 2013 commit, is in more legal trouble after being arrested at 7 a.m. Saturday morning in State College.

The former Central Dauphin linebacker has been charged with a felony count of aggravated assault, three counts of resisting arrest and marijuana possession. Issah was not able to post the $20,000 bail and is in custody at the Centre County Jail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for 8:30 a.m. Wednesday.

The criminal docket for Issah can be viewed here.

This is not Issah’s first run in with the law, after being arrested in March for passing counterfeit money at a Harrisburg McDonald’s. The incident lead to his scholarship being pulled. It was suggested that he attend a prep school for a semester to a year by Bill O’Brien.

However, after his latest arrest it appears his chances of ever joining the Nittany Lions are slim to none.
