Pitt OL Keith Coleman arrested
PITTSBURGH -- Police arrested a University of Pittsburgh football player and charged him with aggravated assault, harassment and disorderly conduct after a dispute left another man with a broken bone.
Reserve offensive lineman Keith Coleman, 20, was arrested just before 2 a.m. ET Saturday in Pittsburgh. Sgt. James Kohnen says a witness told officers that Coleman spoke to two women, and that upset their two male companions.
Kohnen says the player told investigators that the other men called him a racial slur, and a fight began.
One of the men was taken to a hospital with a broken collarbone.
Coleman was arraigned Saturday and released on his own recognizance. A listed phone number for him could not be found, and it was unclear whether he had an attorney.
The team did not immediately return a call seeking comment.
