Lucas Nix OL Pitt
Pitt offensive lineman Lucas Nix was recently charged following an incident that occurred the day after Christmas while on break.
Nix had the three charges sent to him on January 5th, and they were public drunkenness, criminal mischief, and disorderly conduct. Nix's brother Nate, a former Pitt player, allegedly got into an altercation at the home of Pat Eger and Joe Madson, a pair of West Virginia football players. All four played high school football together. Nate called Lucas to come pick him up, and when he arrived he damaged the door and got into a verbal altercation with the two WVU football players. Nix left without further incident and no punches were thrown.
Nix was allowed to play in Pitt's bowl game two days after receiving the charges.
