Four Penn State athletes charged with disorderly conduct
STATE COLLEGE, Pa. | Police have charged four Penn State athletes - two football players and two basketball players - with disorderly conduct in connection with a scuffle at an off-campus apartment building last month.
State College police Lt. Keith Robb said Wednesday they were among seven suspects charged with the summary offense after the Feb. 26 fight. One person suffered “very minor injuries” and did not require treatment, Robb said.
Police identified four of those charged as Curtis Drake and Derrick Thomas, both 20; and Tre Bowman and Taran Buie, both 19. Drake and Thomas play football, while Bowman plays basketball.
Buie has been suspended from the basketball team since late December for an unrelated and unspecified violation of team rules.
Also charged were Penn State student Christopher Felter, 21, of State College; and two non-students from Susquehanna, Bryan Price, 23, and Craig Price, 21. It was unclear if the Prices were related.
Mardy Fish wins, becomes top-ranked American player
KEY BISCAYNE, Fla. Mardy Fish is the new No. 1 in the United States, and he’s among the final four at the Sony Ericsson Open.
Fish claimed the top American men’s ranking for the first time Wednesday by reaching the semifinals when he beat No. 6-seeded David Ferrer 7-5, 6-2.
A Minnesota native who grew up in Florida, the 29-year-old Fish will climb to at least 11th, a career best, in the next rankings. Good friend Andy Roddick will fall from eighth to 14th after losing his opening match last week.
“I don’t think I would ever feel like I was the No. 1 American,” Fish said. “Andy has had a pretty good career. You can put his career on top of mine about six times. He’s always going to be the top dog in my generation.”
