A Jackson State University football player has been suspended after being charged with vehicular manslaughter. Tiffany Harris, 36, of Byram, was killed in April after being struck by a car driven by 21-year-old JSU player Trevarius Clark, Bryam Police Chief Luke Thompson told WAPT-TV. Thompson could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday afternoon.
According to a statement released by JSU Tuesday afternoon, Clark has “been suspended from the football indefinitely” pending the outcome of his case.
According to JSU’s roster, Clark is currently a junior at the university.
Harris died on April 18 after being hit by a car at Siwell Road and Byram Drive, the station reported. Clark was injured during the accident and taken to the hospital.
Thompson noted that state law requires evidence and blood samples to be taken when there is a fatal crash.
A mugshot of Clark was not immediately available.
JSU suspended two other football players Tuesday after they were arrested and charged with robbery.
Jakaiszer Glass, 20, of Holcomb, and Carl Jones, 21, of Greenwood, were arrested Tuesday by JSU, according to Hinds County Jail records. Details of what led to the charges were not immediately available Tuesday afternoon.
Both men were linebackers for the university.
