The Daily Collegian reports that police visited Nittany Apartments #5204 to investigate “an incident.” This apartment is the home three Penn State players: defensive end Maurice Evans, defensive tackle Abe Koroma, and cornerback A. J. Wallace. The language of the report was vague, as apparently police have not yet released any information about what in particular was being investigated.
This has an ominous ring to it. First of all, at least four police vehicles were involved, including a “special response vehicle.” Does that seem like a bit of overreaction, unless they’re dealing with something major? Furthermore, if it was merely underage drinking or some similar minor offense, the police wouldn’t be playing things so close to the vest.
This Turkey does not want to go all National Enquirer on you, but another incident was coincidentally reported yesterday: an 18 year-old Park Forest girl claims that she was raped on August 23 by two known people. Let us hope that there is no connection.
Needless to say, with three defensive starters involved, Nittany Lions fans hope this will blow over.
