CBKB: 4 St. Bonaventure basketball players charged

AP Sports Writer

BUFFALO, N.Y. Four St. Bonaventure men's basketball players have been charged with harassment and disorderly conduct, charges that stem from a double stabbing on campus last month.

State police served summonses Friday on junior guards Malcolm Eleby and Lewis Leonard, sophomore forward Da'Quan Cook and freshman forward Brett Roseboro. They each face at least one count of both harassment and disorderly conduct.

The players' lawyer, Brian O'Connell, says he hopes to have the cases resolved by next month given the minor nature of the charges.

Police say two men associated with a community college basketball team were stabbed during a March 21 fight. Both were treated at a hospital and released.

Investigators won't say exactly how the St. Bonaventure players are connected to the stabbing or fight, but say other arrests are pending.
