Rutgers football player Izaia Bullock allegedly confided murder plot to getaway driver

NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. — Former Rutgers football player Izaia Bullock allegedly confided his plot to murder two people to a witness he tried to recruit to be his getaway driver and lookout in the crime.

The witness audio recorded Bullock's plots and turned over the information to the Rutgers Police Department, according to an affidavit of probable cause obtained from the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office through an Open Public Records Act request.

The complaint also indicates Bullock attempted to kill two people by acquiring gloves, crushing up Tylenol, possessing a mask and looking up the location of the victim's home as well as soliciting the assistance of another person.

Bullock, 22, a Linden, N.J., native, is expected to have a video court hearing this afternoon and remain in jail at least until the end of the week following the filing of a motion for pretrial detention by the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office.

The motion comes a day after Bullock was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of conspiracy to commit murder, both first-degree crimes.

Bullock was listed as a redshirt junior linebacker on the Rutgers football roster. He saw action in one game, Sept. 22 against Buffalo.

Bullock was dismissed from the team Tuesday.

Rutgers coach Chris Ash declined comment through a school spokesman. Ash’s weekly radio show is tonight. The next time he is scheduled to address reporters is Thursday. 

"Izaia Bullock has been dismissed from the team. The university is initiating disciplinary proceedings. All further questions should be directed to the Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office," a Rutgers spokesperson said in an email Tuesday evening.
