Three Pitt players charged with assault

The SportsXchange

Three Pittsburgh players are facing assault and conspiracy charges stemming from an incident last month.

Running back Ray Graham, wide receiver Devin Street and defensive back Lafayette Pitts were charged Thursday night but not arrested, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.

The players will face a preliminary hearing on Jan. 9.

The university did not immediately comment on the charges or address the players' status for Saturday's game with Notre Dame.

Pittsburgh police said in a criminal complaint that as they tried to disperse a crowd from an intersection in Oakland on Oct. 21 the alleged victim, Karl Olsheski, told them that three men assaulted him but that he did not want medical attention or wish to file a police report.

According to the complaint, Olsheski said he was walking with two women when Graham directed a racial slur at him and then the three men descended upon him and Street hit him in the head.

Graham leads Pitt in rushing with 622 yards and seven touchdowns and Street is the team's top receiver with 50 catches for 695 yards and four touchdowns.
