WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -Purdue wide receiver Selwyn Lymon faces team discipline after being charged with two other players in connection with a nightclub fight during which he was stabbed in the chest.
Purdue coach Joe Tiller on Friday did not specify the punishment against Lymon. A school statement did not say whether he would play Saturday against Eastern Illinois.
Lymon, 20, was charged Thursday with six misdemeanor counts, including battery, lying to police officers, drunken driving and illegal alcohol possession from the March 20 brawl. He is scheduled to appear in court Sept. 24.
Prosecutors also charged linebacker Stanford Keglar and defensive back Jonte Lindsey with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and false informing.
The players could not be reached for comment Friday as no telephone numbers were listed in their names.
Authorities said in court documents that Lymon admitted using a fake identification card to enter the nightclub and drank beer and seven or eight shots of vodka before the fight. Police said a hospital test found he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.179 percent - more than double the state's legal limit to drive.
Tippecanoe County Prosecutor Pat Harrington said the woman who stabbed Lymon would not be charged because investigators believe she acted in self-defense.
Tiller said in a statement that he would wait for the court cases to be resolved before making final decisions on the players.
``I have decided to deal with the one aspect that is not in dispute - that Selwyn was underage and had consumed alcohol,'' Tiller said. ``Disciplinary steps will be taken with him on this matter.''
Lymon, of Fort Wayne, played in 13 games, including 12 starts, last season as a sophomore. He ranked fourth on team with 33 receptions for 580 yards and three touchdowns and led Purdue with a 17.6 yard per catch average.
He had three catches for 32 yards and a touchdown in Purdue's win over Toledo last weekend.
