Charges Dropped Against Baker and Bowman

I guess this is good news.

BELLEFONTE -- Felony aggravated assault charges were dismissed against Penn State University football players Chris Baker and Navorro Bowman today in Centre County Court.

Both players were bound over for trial on the misdemeanor counts of simple assault and disorderly conduct and summary counts of harassment and stalking.

The charges were filed after a fight that occurred on campus on Oct. 7.

No date was set for trial.

The district attorney's office plans to look into refiling the felony charge against the two.

Wait, so chargers were dropped by the court, but the DA is considering refiling charges? I knew a bunch of people who got into fights all the time in college, and I can't recall any of them facing felony charges for it. Let alone having felony charges dropped and refiled by the DA. It sure seems to me the people in the DA's office have it out for Penn State football players.

No word yet on what this means for Baker and Bowman's status for the bowl game.
