STORRS, Conn. (AP) - Connecticut running back Lyle McCombs has publically apologized for his arrest last week on a breach of peace charge, saying it created a distraction that hurt the Huskies (3-3) in their 19-3 loss to Rutgers.
The sophomore was arrested along with his girlfriend on Friday after an altercation outside a residence hall.
McCombs is due in Rockville Superior Court Nov. 27.
McCombs spoke to reporters Tuesday at the school's weekly football media luncheon. He says he feels fortunate that he was only suspended for the first quarter of Saturday's game, and has not been told if he will face any additional sanctions from the university.
He is expected to start Saturday against Temple.
McCombs was suspended for 10 weeks in January, 2011 after marijuana was found in his dorm room.
