UConn football's Dave Teggart, Jerome Williams arrested for fighting

New, 6 comments

Junior kicker Dave Teggart and sophomore linebacker Jerome Williams were arrested early this morning after a fight between the two of them, according to the Courant.

The two were arrested shortly after midnight in Hilltop Apartments and were charged with second-degree breach of peace. Both are scheduled to appear in Rockville Superior Court on Oct. 12.

Randy Edsall downplayed the incident this morning, from the Courant:

"It will be handled internally and I hope they take that aggression on the field to the other people rather than themselves," Edsall said. "Nowadays, as well all know, when there's a little spat, they don't just tell you to go home or anything like that. Now you get arrested, written up for breach of peace."

According to the report, both players are likely to play on Sunday.

Not a ton to add here besides the fact that fighting with your teammate isn't a great sign and a pretty stupid idea.

Also a stupid idea? Getting into a fight with a linebacker when you're a kicker.
