"Two Penn State athletes have been cited by State College police for fighting in front of McDonald's on East College Avenue.
Basketball recruit Taran Buie, 18, and rising football sophomore Curtis Drake, 19, were reportedly throwing punches and shoving around 1:21 a.m. Sunday in the 400 block of East College Avenue when State College police arrived.
Both were given a summary disorderly conduct citation, which carries a $443 fine.
The officer wrote the pair was engaging in “fighting, tumultuous, threatening behavior.”
Penn State athletics spokesman Jeff Nelson couldn’t be reached for comment.
Drake, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound wide receiver from Philadelphia, saw action in 11 games as a true freshman last season. He caught eight passes for 98 yards, rushed four times for 24 yards and threw a 14-yard touchdown pass.
Buie, a 6-foot-2 guard, will join the Nittany Lions this fall after a decorated prep career. The younger brother of Penn State basketball senior Taylor Battle averaged more than 20 points per game during his lone season on the State College Area High School basketball team, helping lead the Little Lions to the District 6 Class AAAA final."
I assume this means they were fighting each other? Anyway, just not good news. Other than Lift for Life, NOTHING good ever happens on ArtsFest weekend when it comes to our athletes.
