USC cornerback Isaiah Langley has been suspended for the Trojans’ season-opening game against Alabama, Coach Clay Helton confirmed Monday, after Langley was arrested on suspicion of three misdemeanor offenses in May.

Langley was arrested on May 6 on UCLA’s campus on suspicion of trespassing, intoxication and resisting arrest, according to UCLA police spokeswoman Nancy Greenstein. Helton said Langley was disciplined by USC in May for violating team rules.

Langley was a backup cornerback as a freshman in 2015. He appeared in 11 games.

Langley was attending a fraternity party at UCLA when he was arrested, according to Greenstein. She said Langley gave responding officers the wrong age and resisted arrest.


“When he was asked to leave, he refused,” Greenstein said. “Police were called and he was arrested for misdemeanor trespassing.”

Langley does not currently face charges, according to Frank Mateljan, a spokesman for the Los Angeles city attorney’s office. Mateljan said the city attorney’s office is in the process of placing Langley in the Neighborhood Justice Program, a diversion program for first-time, nonviolent offenders to avoid criminal records.
