Purdue Examples?

Sad to say, several Purdue football players -- starters -- are working their way through the legal system after what sounds like a drunken brawl in March.
The Tippecanoe County prosecutor's office filed six charges today against a Purdue University wide receiver in connection to a March fight in which he was stabbed.

Selwyn Lymon, 20, of Fort Wayne is charged with counts of operating a vehicle while being intoxicated, as well as counts of battery, disorderly conduct, false informing and illegal possession of alcohol.

Tippecanoe County prosecutor Pat Harrington said this evening that charges will not be filed against the woman who stabbed Lymon because police believe she acted in self-defense. Her identity has not be released.

The prosecutor's office also filed charges against two other Purdue players who they believe were at Nick's Nightclub in West Lafayette on March 30. A fight broke out there that morning and led to Lymon's being stabbed.

Stanford Keglar, 22, a Purdue linebacker, is charged with battery, false informing and disorderly conduct. Jonte Lindsey, 21, a reserve, is charged with counts of false informing and disorderly conduct.

I guess they are preparing themselves for their professional careers.
