To say that I am disappointed in reading this would be an understatement. From CBS Sportsline:Chicago Bears cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. and two former UCLA football players were charged with assault Thursday for allegedly taking part in an early morning fight at a restaurant last month.
Manning was charged with one count of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury, Deputy District Attorney Karen Murcia said.
His arraignment was scheduled for Thursday afternoon. Manning has previously declined comment.
Manning, a former UCLA star, was arrested April 23, along with former Bruins Tyler Ebell and Maurice Drew, after they allegedly attacked a man at a restaurant near the UCLA campus in Westwood.
Police said the players then drove off in Manning's SUV but were pulled over by officers soon after when the vehicle was spotted by a helicopter crew.
All three were released on $30,000 bail each.So much for Karl Dorrell cleaning up the underbelly and installing "character" in the UCLA football program.
It's official. Nothing has changed since UCLA fired Bob Toledo. Karl Dorrell's program is turning into just another nightmare.
