Today, Utah State dismissed a player from their football team after he allegedly broke into a female students’ dorm room and sexually assaulted her on Sunday.

Ismael “Izzy” Kalani Vaifo’ou, 22, faces charges of forcible sexual abuse, burglary, trespassing and intoxication, according to Fox 13 out of Salt Lake City.

According to an arrest report, Vaifo’ou was seen entering several suites on different floors of a building in the Living Learning Community, an on-campus residence hall. Police believe he got in because of some residents leaving their doors unlocked.

Around 3:30 a.m., Vaifo’ou reportedly entered the bedrooms of two female students who shared a suite. In the first room he entered, the resident said he took a step toward her bed, then left after she asked who he was.

He then went into the other female student’s room, stripped down to his underwear and climbed into her bed, according to both the victim’s account and Vaifo’ou’s own admission to police. He then began to touch her while she was still asleep, which the female student said was under her clothing but Vaifo’ou claimed was over the clothing. She then woke up, pushed him out of her bed, and he got dressed and left.

This is a wild story. The Sophomore defensive end is no little man. He stands at 6’3 and weighs 240 pounds. The former Highland High School graduate is from Salt Lake City, Utah. Last year in his true freshman season he racked up 7 tackles and played in four games.
