UConn Huskies kicker Dave Teggart and reserve linebacker Jerome Williams were arrested on Monday night by UConn police after the two were involved in a fight according to Chip Malafronte of the New Haven Register. The kicker (no pun intended) was they were arrested for fighting each other and were charged with breach of peace.
According to Malafronte, Edsall said that the matter will be handled internally.
Ed Daigneault of The Republican-American adds that the players will still play because no one from outside the football program was involved.
“Nobody got hurt,” Edsall said. “No black eyes, nothing like that. It was like a cat fight.”
It will be interesting to see what the details were as to the cause of the fight when the arrest report is made public or the media can take a look at it.
Teggart was demoted yesterday into an “OR” situation with Chad Christen as UConn’s starting kicker.
Update: Here’s video of what Edsall had to say from Shawn Courchesne of the Hartford Courant.
