Charges Not Filed After Matt McGloin-Curtis Drake Altercation

Penn State quarterback Matthew McGloin and wide receiver Curtis Drake both avoided criminal charges on Thursday following their altercation in a Lasch Building locker room last week, as Mindy Szkaradnik of The Daily Collegian reports.

The University Police and Fire Daily Activity Log lists the incident as "exceptionally cleared." The person labeled the "victim" in the incident did not wish to press charges, Assistant Chief of University Police Bill Moerschbacher said.

"The victim in this case doesn’t want charges, so there will be no charges filed," Moerschbacher said. "In those cases we’re not going to, except in very rare cases, go against the wishes of a victim."

Szkaradnik reports both could still face university discipline through the Office of Student Conduct.

McGloin claimed responsibility for the altercation at the team's TicketCity Bowl media day on Monday and said he planned to reconcile with Drake, someone he said he's "good friends" with, at some point.
