Keith Coleman Arrested In 2:00 AM Fight

The issues keep piling up for Pitt, as offensive lineman Keith Coleman has been arrested:

Keith Coleman, 20, a reserve offensive lineman, was arrested early this morning after an altercation in which another man suffered a broken collarbone, Pittsburgh police said.

Police Sgt. James Kohnen said Mr. Coleman was arrested at 1:48 a.m. after the fight broke out during a dispute with two other men at the intersection of Semple and Ward streets. A witness told police that Mr. Coleman spoke to two women, which upset their male companions, Sgt. Kohnen said.

Mr. Coleman told police that the other men used a racial slur to refer to him, Sgt. Kohnen said. An altercation erupted, and one of the other men was injured.

The amount of trouble Pitt players have gotten into in the past few weeks really is remarkable.
