Two West Virginia Basketball players prove they enjoy pain

The Pittsburgh Pirates have been the scourge of MLB for a number of years now. To let you know how bad they’ve been, the last run at glory for the Pirates was when Barry Bonds played for them.

So given that info it surprises me that anyone would even bother going to their games much less go to their games, get into an altercation with security officers, pepper sprayed & then charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and underage drinking.

According to the Post-Gazette that’s exactly what two WVU basketball players did.

Joe Mazzulla and Cam Thoroughman were arrested after a scuffle at the security station where they had been detained by off-duty police officers working during the Pirates game against the Colorado Rockies.

The two are charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and underage drinking.

Police had to call for backup because Mr. Mazzulla and Mr. Thoroughman, both 20, were refusing to provide identification as they argued with the officers, according to a complaint.

Police said Mr. Thoroughman, a 6-foot, 7-inch forward on the Mountaineers team, reached across a counter toward an officer.

This led to at least two officers grabbing him as they demanded that he place his hands behind his back.

He continued to struggle with the officers after police used a burst of pepper spray to control him. Eventually officers dragged him to the floor, police said.

While Mr. Thoroughman was down, Mr. Mazzulla tried to intervene, pulling his teammate away from the officers, even throwing a punch at one of them before he, too, was subdued, according to officers.

Well that was an alcohol fueled Mensa moment of brilliance. But were any couches burned? At least they weren’t tasered. I think they were upset about losing their #1 party school ranking.

Bobby “Huggy Bear” Huggins is taking the traditional stance on this:

“We will let the judicial process take its course and the matter will be handled internally.”

Bob Huggins is appalled by the lack of severity in these charges. His recruiting has dropped off from the horse-punching days.

Instead of being hauled off to jail, the pair was required to watch a Pirates doubleheader.
Talk about cruel and unusual punishment!

    Huggins mustard suit and those shoes are a picture of sartorial splendor.
