LOGAN — A Utah State football player has been suspended from the team after being arrested for soliciting a prostitute.
Logan City Police Chief Gary Jensen said 20-year-old Hayden Weichers was arrested Tuesday afternoon and cited for solicitation of a prostitute, a class B misdemeanor.
The incident reportedly occurred on October 22.
Following the arrest, USU associate AD Doug Hoffman issued a press release announcing Weichers had been suspended from the team. The statement said football coach Matt Wells had suspended the red-shirt freshman wide receiver indefinitely for a violation of team rules.
Weichers is from South Jordan, Utah and played for Bingham High School. He has played in all nine games this season for the Aggies, catching 10 passes for 84-yards. He had a career high of three receptions for 27-yards in Saturday’s game against the Hawaii Warriors.
