Gabe Marks, Cougars’ top receiver, arrested

Washington State wide receiver Gabe Marks was arrested early Saturday morning on the main drag of Pullman’s Greek Row outside a popular campus bar, according to the Pullman Police Department’s daily activity log. A junior next season, Marks was arrested after 2 a.m. at 600 NE Colorado Street and charged with fourth-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespass, a minor intoxicated in public and for “frequenting a tavern” as a minor.

In 2013, Marks, a Los Angeles native, led a Cougars team that finished 6-7 with 74 catches for 807 yards. He also tied for a team-best seven receiving touchdowns. This isn’t his first run-in with the law since he came to Pullman in 2012 as part of Mike Leach’s first recruiting class as WSU head coach.

In February 2013, Marks was cited for being a minor exhibiting effects of having consumed alcohol, an offense for which he wasn’t suspended. At the time, Leach provided no comment.

When asked Sunday afternoon if the school was aware of Marks’ arrest, a WSU spokesperson said he wouldn’t comment on team matters.

Leach has three rules that mandate automatic dismissal: Stealing, using illegal drugs and hitting a woman.

Marks, a gregarious sort, issued an apology through his Twitter account early Sunday morning.
