A 21-year-old walk-on football player was arrested at 2:30 a.m. Tuesday at Clayton and Jackson Streets. He reportedly admitted to drinking beer at Toppers. So far, the story tracks.
There was a disturbance, the police showed up, and someone supposedly hit someone else in the face with his fist. Trent Dittmer reportedly was charged with public intoxication.
My question is . . . why public intoxication? If the report is accurate, why not disorderly conduct, resisting, assault, or the like? Does this sound worse than it is, or are additional charges forthcoming? Stay tuned. . . .
