K-State suspends tight end Norwood

September 20, 2006


— Tight end Rashaad Norwood, the leading receiver for the Kansas State Wildcats, has been suspended for Saturday's game against No. 8 Louisville.

Norwood, a junior, was arrested early Sunday and charged with two misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and obstruction of the legal process.

Coach Ron Prince said he anticipated Norwood would return this season but did not say whether the suspension would last longer than one game.

"I'm disappointed in what happened, disappointed in the circumstances that would lead to such an event," said Prince, whose Wildcats (3-0) face their stiffest test of the season against undefeated Louisville. "Right now all I'm saying is he won't play this weekend."

University police Sgt. Richard Herrman said Norwood was among two groups of people involved in an argument in a parking lot south of the university's student union. When the groups were asked to leave, Norwood did not stop shouting at the other group, Herrman said.

When he was arrested, Norwood refused to give police his name, date of birth and other standard information, Hermann said.

Norwood did not physically resist the officers but did not cooperate with instructions, Herrman said.

Norwood's bond was set at $750. A court date was set for Oct. 3.
