PISCATAWAY, N.J. (AP) -- Rutgers University has dismissed a player arrested last weekend in Florida on a robbery charge from its football team.

Coach Kyle Flood said in a release Thursday that Darian Dailey had been dismissed from the team.

The defensive back and another man were arrested and charged with robbery after the Sarasota County Sheriff's Office in Florida said Dailey and another suspect confronted a bicyclist with a gun early Sunday and demanded money.

The bicyclist got their license plate number as they drove away, and authorities arrested the pair in Manatee County.

Dailey, 19, of Bradenton, is scheduled to be arraigned on July 10 in Sarasota County Court. An attorney wasn't listed in online court records.

He redshirted last season after arriving at Rutgers.
