Pitt's Lucas Nix Facing Charges

Pitt offensive lineman Lucas Nix is facing three summary charges related to an alleged Dec. 26 incident in Pleasant Hills, according to criminal complaint.

Nix was not arrested and received the charges in the mail, according to Paul Zeise of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, who describes the alleged incident this way.

In a nutshell, here is what I can gather about what this is all about - Lucas's brother, Nate, got into some kind of altercation at a house, called Lucas to come help him, Lucas shows up, apparently rips off the screen door or some part of the front door and starts barking for the others to come outside - the police are called, everyone leaves, no punches thrown, nobody hurt - no fighting involved - just some wolfing and jawing among guys who had a few too many pops.

Nix is a senior, so it's not clear whether his discipline will fall under the purview of interim head coach Keith Patterson, leading the Panthers in Saturday's BBVA Compass Bowl, or new head coach Paul Chryst, if he is to face any at all. Certainly a situation worth monitoring.
