Shawn Oakman Charged In Convenience Store Incident At Penn State

Penn State defensive end Shawn Oakman has been charged for his alleged involvement in an incident at a campus convenience store in February. (New coach Bill O'Brien dismissed him from the team for "violation of team rules" a few days later.) Oakman was charged with harassment, disorderly conduct, and two counts of retail theft.

University police chief Tyrone Parham said Oakman entered the store and presented his student ID to purchase some items. However, the store clerk noticed that Oakman had hidden a hoagie and a bottle of grape juice on his person, and held on to the student’s ID, Parham said.

In an attempt to recover the ID, Oakman shoved the employee against the wall, the chief said.

Oakman is 6-foot-7 and 260 pounds, so that had to be pretty frightening for the clerk.

Oakman did not play in 2011, but might have competed for a starting job in 2012.
