STORRS, Conn. (AP) _ Police say University of Connecticut
sophomore tailback Lyle McCombs has been arrested and accused of
yelling, pushing and spitting at his girlfriend during an argument
outside a residential hall.
Police said Saturday that the 166-pound McCombs was charged with
second-degree breach of peace. The fight occurred just after
midnight Friday on campus in Storrs.
Police say the 20-year-old McCombs was released after he posted
a $500 bond.
McCombs, from New York City’s Staten Island, had a breakout
season as a freshman, carrying the ball more than 275 times for
more than 1,100 yards.
McCombs was playing in UConn’s game Saturday at Rutgers.
