Four Penn State players arrested in 'egg-throwing incident'

Oh, those crazy college kids.

Four Penn State players were arrested Thursday night – mischief night – for an “egg throwing situation,” according to Onward State.

The four players, tight end Brent Wilkerson, safety Anthony Smith, center Wendy Laurent and defensive end Garrett Sickels, were all charged with criminal mischief for throwing eggs at Beaver Hall, an on-campus residence hall.

Discipline from head coach James Franklin could be on the way.

“We are aware of the egg throwing situation that occurred Thursday evening and will determine the appropriate measures for the four squad members involved,” Franklin said in statement.

The incident, which was reported to police by a student at Beaver Hall, took place between 10:36 and 11:18 p.m. Thursday night.

Sickels, a redshirt freshman, has played in all seven games this season, registering three tackles and a sack. In six games, Wilkerson, a sophomore, has two catches for 18 yards and a touchdown while Laurent, who has played in four games this year, saw his most significant playing time last weekend against Ohio State. With starting tackle Donovan Smith questionable to play Saturday against Maryland, Laurent, also a sophomore, was potentially set to see some more playing time. Now his status is up in the air.

Smith has not played this season.

The Nittany Lions and Terps square off at noon Saturday at Beaver Stadium.
