A former University of Washington football player is one of the men arrested for a bank robbery in Newcastle.

Luther Leonard was a wide receiver for UW in 2011 but now the 23-year-old is being held on $100,000 bail, accused of one count of first-degree robbery.
  
Police believe Leonard and 48-year-old Jeffrey Pool are the so-called "Big Top Bandits." The nickname was based on the clothing worn by the suspects
