Penn State's Akeel Lynch charged in misdemeanor

Posted: February 26, 2013

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.

Lynch did not play last season. Nov. 16 was a Friday, the day before Penn State played a home game against Indiana.
