Southern Utah's Wade Collie Arrested and Suspended

Southern Utah has had trouble scoring at times this year. Those issues will be exacerbated with the news that third leading scorer Wade Collie has been arrested for alleged drug possession, and has been suspended indefinitely.

According to the Iron County jail records, Wade Collie, 21, was arrested early Sunday morning. Few details surrounding the arrest were immediately available.

The county booking website indicates that he was being held on suspicion of having drug paraphernalia and of possession a controlled substance with intent to distribute it. Bail for Collie was set at $10,000
Collie was averaging seven points and 3.6 rebounds per game, shooting 42% from the field and 39% from downtown. He was also solid on the defensive glass for them.

The Thunderbirds have a tough schedule down the stretch, and could have used Collie. But with the seriousness of the allegations, I am guessing we have seen the last of him this season. If the charges are true, hopefully the arrest can be the start of a chain to turn his life around.
