Colorado linebacker Sipili, ex-defensive lineman Perri sued over assault

BOULDER, Colo. -- University of Colorado linebacker Michael Sipili and former defensive lineman Christopher Perri have been
sued over an assault that happened last year.

Colorado student John Antrim filed the lawsuit this week. He says he
had three metal plates inserted into his face after the assault.
Antrim's lawyers say he suffered traumatic brain injury and
long-term disfigurement. He is seeking compensation for his
injuries.

Sipili pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge in the
case. He was suspended from school and the football team last fall
but is expected to be a starter this fall.

Perri was suspended for three games and decided after the Independence Bowl game that he would leave the program on his own accord.
