PSU’s Stephfon Green charged with buying alcohol for minors

Well, that certainly sheds a little light on the situation.

In August, head coach Joe Paterno said he doubted Stephfon Green would ever be back with the Penn State football program after the running back had been suspended prior to the start of summer camp for violating unspecified team rules.  Less than two weeks later, Green was unexpectedly welcomed back to the team after his teammates voted to allow the senior back into the fold.

So, what led to all of the hubbub in the first place?  The Centre Daily Times reported Thursday morning that Green was  charged Tuesday with purchasing alcohol for minors.  The incident in question occurred back in mid-July.

From the paper’s website:

According to the state police’s Bureau of Liquor Control Enforcement, Green, 22, was seen by an officer taking money from two minors at the state liquor store on North Atherton Street on July 15. Police said Green bought liquor with the money and gave the minors the liquor. Charges of furnishing alcohol to minors were filed on Tuesday, police said.

The Allentown Morning Call reports that a preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Oct. 12.

Green dressed but did not play in the opener this past weekend.  For his career, he’s rushed for 1,085 yards.

    But I thought these things never happen at the “we never get in any trouble Penn St.” Give me a break.

    I don’t think anyone really ever said or thought that PSU kids never got in trouble. They are kids, after all. Kids do dumb things.

    You are confusing your misguided (and frankly, stupid) statement with the more common and more accurate assertion that PSU as an institution follows the NCAA rules.

    I’m glad I could clear that up for ya’.

    Freaking idiot. The ONE thing cops in state college are super anal retentive about is underage.

    Kids still ask random passers-by to buy them booze?

    Handie-

    That liquor store isn’t really in a location where there are random passers by.

    My guess was they have him the money in the car when they pulled into the parking lot, or they met in separate cars and he got out ang grabbed the cash before going in.

    Now, go downtown State College and you will definitely see kids near the bottle shops asking randoms to buy booze. It is a rite of passage for local high school kids. I know quite a few who have done that, myself included.
