All Charges Against Terps’ RB Wes Brown Dropped


The University of Maryland and RB Wes Brown received good news, as it was announced that all charges against Brown had been dropped. Brown had been suspended indefinitely by the team when it was first announced that he would be charged with second degree assault of an officer, theft lesser than $1000 and illegal wiretapping.

According to NBC Sports, a description given of incident is as follows:

University of Maryland police spokesperson Sgt. Aaron Davis said College Park police received a call from the Baltimore Police Department, asking for help in locating Brown. Davis said they found Brown Wednesday night on Knox Road, and said Brown assaulted a police officer before running away. Davis also said the wiretapping charge came from recording police officers with his cell phone without their knowledge. Davis declined to comment on why the Baltimore Police Department wanted Brown, saying that it is an open investigation.

With the latest developments in the case, Brown should have no problems being reinstated back to the team, which will be a good thing for Coach Edsall and the team. Brown was the second leading rusher last season.
