Senior linebacker Fotu Leiato was dismissed from the Oregon football team after he was arrested for a second time since January.

Leiato was arrested late last month on charges of theft, criminal trespassing and criminal mischief. He also was charged in January for misdemeanor trespassing.

Head coach Mario Cristobal said in April that he would take “appropriate action” once he reviewed the case.

The 21-year-old Leiato had three sacks in the Ducks’ spring game and was expected to compete a starting position at outside linebacker. He made 14 tackles last season.
