Of course they were.
What’s being labeled as a Facebook-driven party attended by upwards of 4,000 people in Fort Collins Saturday has led to a couple of legal issues for a pair of Colorado State football players.
According to 9news.com, linebacker James Skelton and defensive lineman Zach Tiedgen were arrested this weekend for third-degree assault and disorderly conduct, respectively. The Rams duo were two of four people arrested in connection to a fight that broke out at a party police said led to emergency personnel being “overwhelmed with alcohol-overdose cases.”
The school has been informed of the situation, and each player was permitted to practice with the team Monday.
“I’m aware of the incident,” head coach Steve Fairchild said. “I’ve looked into it, we are looking into it and we’ll comment further when we know more.”
While neither player has been suspended by the football program, Dean of Students Jody Donovan told the television station that they could face school-imposed sanctions.
Skelton, a redshirt junior, has played in 24 games the past two seasons, starting four of those contests. He had been penciled in as a starter prior to the incident.
Tiedgen started seven games as a redshirt freshman in 2009, but missed the 2010 season due to a torn ACL. He’s currently listed as backup.
