RICHMOND, Ky. – Eastern Kentucky defense attorney Marquae Kirkendoll was accused of robbing a postman in New Mexico and suspended from the team.
According to documents filed this week in federal court in New Mexico, Kirkendoll, 21, was also charged with stealing a key from the porter that was used to open mailbags and lockers, brandishing a gun, providing assistance and to have committed conspiracy.
Kirkendoll was relocated from New Mexico to Eastern Kentucky in January. His attorney, Adele Burt Brown, did not immediately respond for comment.
Also charged in the January 18 robbery was another former UNM player, Rayshawn Boyce, who was arrested in February. Boyce is facing an additional charge of knowingly possessing a firearm after being convicted of domestic violence, the documents say.
Kirkendoll was charged Tuesday, and Eastern Kentucky football spokesman Rixon Lane said the player was suspended the next day after the program learned of his arrest.
The 6-foot-tall, 184-pound Chicago native Kirkendoll played in 16 games over two seasons for New Mexico.
