Demetrius Treadwell F Akron
Akron Zips forward Demetrius Treadwell was arrested and charged with Assault, 2 Counts of Disorderly Conduct For Fighting and Being Intoxicated. Being intoxicated sounds like a crime I could be arrested for every other day.
Police were called when Treadwell and a friend were allegedly beating up a bars DJ. When police arrived they saw Treadwell and the friend punching the DJ in the head and body. When police confronted them Treadwell tried to get away through a crowded area and became hostile and had to be taken to the ground and handcuffed. His friend was also handcuffed as he blocked a police officer trying to allow Treadwell to get away. Treadwell continued to yell obscenities while in handcuffs. The DJ did not report any injuries and it's alleged that the fight started when Treadwell and the friend messed with the DJ equipment.
Treadwell, a 6'7 freshman, has averaged 6.6 points/game and 4.8 blocks/game for the 3-3 Zips. He has since been suspended from the team.
