The ugly incident that led to the suspension of Rutgers wide receiver Leonte Carroo appears to be getting uglier. MyCentralJersey.com reports today Carroo’s mother and girlfriend have been charged by Rutgers police for their alleged involvement in the incident outside Rutgers’ football stadium earlier this month that led to Carroo’s suspension.
Per the report, Lavern Carroo (mother), Maria Vega (girlfriend) and Juan Vega were each charged by the Rutgers University Police Department for simple assault and disorderly conduct. Carroo was previously charged for simple assault. The Rutgers football player was also suspended by head coach Kyle Flood, who of course has also been suspended for a different incident. Carroo reportedly intervened in a confrontation between Maria Vega and another woman Carroo was previously involved with. The name of that woman has not been reported, but is the alleged victim in the incident that claims she was slammed to the concrete ground by Carroo.
The investigation is still ongoing at this time. Carroo remains suspended from the Rutgers program.
