UConn's McCombs arrested after fight with girl
October 6, 2012
STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Police say University of Connecticut sophomore tailback Lyle McCombs has been arrested and accused of yelling, pushing and spitting at his girlfriend during an argument outside a residential hall.
Police said Saturday that the 166-pound McCombs was charged with second-degree breach of peace. The fight occurred just after midnight Friday on campus in Storrs.
Police say the 20-year-old McCombs was released after he posted a $500 bond.
McCombs, from New York City's Staten Island, had a breakout season as a freshman, carrying the ball more than 275 times for more than 1,100 yards.
McCombs was benched for the first quarter of UConn's loss Saturday at Rutgers for what the school called a violation of team rules. He went on to rush for 32 yards on 12 carries.
