    This gave me the chills...SMITH, CARLOS
    12/99
    A Marshall football player has been charged in a racially motivated attack on a city police detective's son, police said today. Carlos Smith, 22, a senior defensive end, was charged Tuesday with unlawful wounding, a felony. Five other players also taunted the boy but have not been charged in the Dec. 19 attack, police said. Police said Brandon Maynard, 22, was walking to his car about 1:30 a.m. when six men accosted him. The men made several comments, then Smith punched him in the face and knocked him down, police said. ``The kid is 5-foot-10 and weighs 140 soaking wet. The guy that hit him is 6-5 and weighs 260,'' Detective Chris Sperry of the Huntington Police Department said. ``He didn't know any of the players. He just happened to be walking to his car and run across the fellows -- wrong place at the wrong time.'' The players left Maynard lying on the street. A man came out of a nightclub and took him to Cabell Huntington Hospital, where he received more than 40 stitches to his face, Sperry said. Maynard's father, Detective Don Maynard, said, ``We had to call a plastic surgeon because his mouth was completely ripped open. I don't want to see anybody get in trouble, but he had never met these guys before in his life.'' Smith was released on $10,000 bond. Police said his preliminary hearing will be within the next 10 days. Smith, who is black, made racial comments to Maynard, who is white, Captain Steve Hall said.

    I had never heard about this so I,perhaps incorrectly, suspected there might be some others here who hadn't also.My bad.
    What is the time limit Mili? I couldn't find it posted anywhere.

    Hmmm, maybe I'm wrong, but I'm guessing you posted this as a result of the Arden incident. What you posted happened right after the 1999 season and as such none of those players are on the team anymore, so I fail to see the relevance.

    There isn't direct relevance. There also wasn't any malicious intent towards Marshall. The story gave him chills. *shrug* Either way, I'll go ahead and move it to Open Discussion so there aren't any further misunderstandings.
