Miami Defenseman Weber Faces Theft Charge

Miami defenseman Will Weber was arrested in Oxford, Ohio, and charged with theft after police said he stole a purse from a bar on June 21, the Oxford Press reported.

Weber, 20, a second-round pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, also was charged with offenses involving underage persons and certain acts prohibited, the newspaper reported.

He told police that he had consumed between six and eight beers at a residence before going to the bar, and his intoxication led him to picking up the wrong purse for a female companion, according to the newspaper.

Police said Weber tried to hide the purse from officers.
