Redshirt RB Lynch Charged With Criminal Mischief

Rich Barnes-US PRESSWIRE

Charge stems from November incident, was a "complete accident"

Redshirt freshman running back Akeel Lynch has been charged with criminal mischief, stemming from a November 16 incident where he kicked in a window in Shulze Hall on campus, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

According to the Post-Gazette, the charges weren't filed until Friday, and there is no word from the football team as to whether or not Lynch will be disciplined for this event.

Lynch has tweeted about the incident, saying that the incident was a "complete accident" and that it has already been handled.

This is the third time that a Penn State football player has gotten into trouble with the law under Bill O'Brien: Shawn Oakman was arrested in February of 2012 for theft of an on-campus convenience store in February of 2012, while Devon "Moo Moo" Smith was arrested for marijuana possession and possession of drug paraphanalia in March of 2012. Neither athlete is still with the team: Oakman was kicked off the team and has since transferred to Baylor, while Smith transferred to Marshall.
