FARMVILLE, Va. (AP) -Morgan State basketball coach Todd Bozeman, who faced misdemeanor assault and cursing charges following a tirade against a restaurant employee for making the wrong kind of sandwiches, had the charges dropped Tuesday after he apologized.
Court records show Bozeman also agreed to a monetary payment to the employee involved in the Feb. 3 tirade that followed a loss by Morgan State at Longwood.
Judge Robert Spencer then agreed to drop the charges.
``I want to apologize to Mulligan's and the community,'' Bozeman said in Prince Edward County General District Court.
Bozeman had been released on a $1,000 unsecured bond, and faced up to a $2,500 fine and a year in jail for the assault charge, and a $500 fine for cursing the employee.
The charges were brought when Bozeman brought his team to Mulligan's Sports Grille after the loss and became unhappy that the restaurant packed ham and turkey sandwiches for the team instead of the steak sandwiches Bozeman had requested.
In the exchange that followed, witnesses said Bozeman grabbed a restaurant employee by the shoulders and shook her, used profanity and demanded his money back.
Bozeman has denied assaulting the waitress.
