Four Football Players Arrested, Charged With Criminal Mischief

Four football players were arrested and charged with criminal mischief to buildings last night after an “egg throwing situation,” according to Penn State Police.

Tight end Brent Wilkerson, safety Anthony Smith, center Wendy Laurent (all sophomores), and freshman defensive end Garrett Sickels were arrested for throwing eggs at Beaver Hall some time between 10:36 and 11:18 p.m. on Thursday. The incident was reported to police by a student at Beaver Hall.

“We are aware of the egg throwing situation that occurred Thursday evening and will determine the appropriate measures for the four squad members involved,” James Franklin said in a statement.

Sickels has played in all seven of the Nittany Lions’ games this season, while Wilkerson has played in six and Laurent in four. Sickels has three tackles, including a sack, and Wilkerson has two catches for 18 yards and a touchdown against UMass. None of the four players have started a game in their Penn State careers.

We’ll provide updates as more information becomes available before Penn State’s game with Maryland tomorrow.
