CU football player arrested for second time in a month

Boulder Police arrested CU Buffs cornerback Anthony Julmisse on robbery charges.

BOULDER - A suspended University of Colorado football player has been arrested for the second in a month. 

19-year-old Anthony Julmisse was arrested Sunday for first-degree trespassing, robbery, criminal mischief and careless driving. 

Julmisse is accused of throwing a man's cell phone out of a car window following a fender bender near 33rd Street and Arapahoe Avenue, according to an arrest affidavit.  

Shortly after 7:30 p.m., police were called to a hit-and-run where Julmisse is believed to have struck a vehicle from behind -- causing noticeable damage to the vehicle's rear bumper. 

Julmisse offered to pay $20, then $40 in damages for the wreck. Both times, the victim refused, a report of the incident said. 

Following the disagreement over how much damage was done to the vehicle, Julmisse approached the victim and said he'd given him the wrong insurance information. 

At one point, Julmisse reached into the victim's vehicle and grabbed a cell phone from his hand before fleeing the scene with another driver at the wheel. 

He threw the phone out of the passenger side window near Moe’s Bagels on Arapahoe Avenue – less than a block from where the crash occurred.

The phone landed on the sidewalk, and was heavily damaged to the point where it could no longer be used, the arrest report reads. 

Police were able to locate Julmisse a short time later. After being questioned by officers, he was arrested and booked into the Boulder County Jail. 

The sophomore cornerback was also arrested on July 27 on domestic violence, assault and harassment charges. 

After that arrest, football head coach Mike MacIntyre suspended Julmisse indefinitely from all team activities.

CU Boulder spokesman Ryan Huff Chief Spokesperson released the following statement on Julmisse’s most recent arrest.

“Anthony Julmisse remains on indefinite team suspension from his previous arrest in July. While we’re still gathering information about this latest case, we are concerned to hear of these allegations. It’s important to note that in any criminal case involving a student-athlete, there are three separate processes that can result in discipline – a determination by the coach, court sentencing and sanctions from the Office of Student Conduct and Conflict Resolution.”

Julmisse played in all 13 of CU’s games last year – and was one of four true freshman to see the field, according to CU’s website.
