Tyler Hasty, a 2012 3-star recruit from Washington power Bellevue High, has been dismissed from the Oregon St. football program, and has lost his scholarship, after an incident initially reported as having occurred earlier this week, but was subsequently clarified as having happened on Monday morning of July 8th.
Hasty, 19, was apprehended after a pursuit. Linn County sheriff's office records show that a deputy attempted to pull over a BMW that was clocked at 81 mph in a 55-mph zone at 5:41 AM on Highway 34 east of Corvallis.
The driver allegedly attempted to elude the deputy, and then pulled into a business parking lot at Corvallis Feed & Seed, where he lost control, jumped 2 concrete blocks, and crashed. The driver then allegedly fled on foot, before eventually being taken into custody at gunpoint, and identified as Hasty.
Hasty was arrested on charges of felony attempt to elude by vehicle, and also attempting to elude on foot, and released after being booked.
Hasty, who is being represented by Oregon City attorney John Henry Hingson III, have a court date of August 19th at 1:30 PM, for a status check hearing in the case.
Hasty, a red-shirt freshman, whose' father James played in the NFL, was shown as 4th on the depth chart entering spring practice. With 4.5 speed coming out of high school, Hasty was hoped to provide speed in the secondary at some point for the Beavers, but instead will serve only to bring Oregon St. back closer to the scholarship limit, possibly reducing the grey-shirt contingent by one.
