 STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) -Six Penn State football players, including stars Anthony Scirrotto and Justin King, turned themselves in to police on Friday to face charges following an off-campus apartment fight.
Scirrotto and Christopher Baker face the most serious counts, including burglary, felony trespassing, harassment and simple assault. King and three other players face charges of criminal trespassing, harassment and disorderly conduct.
State College police chief Thomas R. King and Centre County District Attorney Michael Madeira held a news conference Friday to announce the charges.
Police said Scirrotto got into an altercation with a female friend on a street in State College and followed three men to an apartment.
Scirrotto, who was also charged with criminal solicitation, called a football player and met up with a group of players who also arrived at the party, police said.
A group of about 10 men, including all six players, rushed into the apartment and a melee ensued, police said. Some of the victims were punched, one was hit in the head with a beer bottle and knocked unconscious, and another was punched and kicked in the face, authorities said.
The other players charged Friday were Jerome Hayes, Lydell Sargeant and Tyrell Sales. Two other non-athletes were charged with less serious offenses, police said.
Scirrotto was the Big Ten's leader last year in interceptions and King was one of coach Joe Paterno's top recruits in 2005.
