USC LB Osa Masina under police investigation in California and Utah

USC linebacker Osa Masina is under criminal investigation in California and Utah for separate incidents, ESPN reports.

Cottonwood Heights, Utah police confirmed that there are two active investigations and that they are working with the Los Angeles Police Department on the matter. An attorney for Masina also confirmed the investigations.

No specifics have been reported or revealed other than a search warrant served to Masina on USC campus last week. The Utah incident happened in July, and the California one prior to that.

“USC is aware of the investigation involving student-athlete Osa Masina,” the school said in a statement. “USC is cooperating fully with authorities in Utah, the lead agency in the investigation. Due to privacy laws and to protect the rights of our students, we are not able to discuss this matter further.”

Masina will not travel with the Trojans for their season-opening game against Alabama in Arlington, Texas. The sophomore linebacker made 25 tackles in 12 games last season.
