Penn State freshman running back Akeel Lynch was charged Friday with misdemeanor criminal mischief for allegedly damaging a window at a campus dormitory in November, university police said.
Penn State Police Chief Tyrone Parham said a window of the Shulze Hall dormitory was damaged Nov. 16 after Lynch kicked it.
The charge was not filed until Friday, Parham said. A preliminary hearing was scheduled for March 27.
A Penn State spokesman said he had no information about any discipline Lynch might face from the football team.
