Antonio Alfano, a University of Colorado Boulder football player, who isn’t currently practicing with the team is facing charges on suspicion of harassment and resisting arrest in Broomfield, according to online court records.
Alfano, 20, a CU defensive end, was arrested in Broomfield on Jan. 7, court records show. The charges are both misdemeanors. Records show he has no other charges issued against him in Colorado.
CU Boulder spokesman Joshua Lindenstein released a statement in response to Alfano’s arrest:
“We are aware of the charges against Mr. Alfano, and we take such allegations very seriously,” the statement read. “The charges have been reported to our Office of Institutional Equity and Compliance in accordance with university policy for further investigation.”
Lindenstein confirmed that Alfano is part of the football team, but hasn’t been medically cleared to play with the team, because he has been experiencing seizures.
Broomfield police spokesperson Jennifer King-Sullivan said Alfano was released Jan. 8 from Broomfield County Detention Center on a personal recognizance bond. Court records show Alfano is scheduled for an arraignment Feb. 10.
AMES — Iowa State’s campus was sent into a fright Thursday night when university police sent out an alert about four males with weapons near the Freddy Court area — campus-owned apartments.
Two charges were filed Tuesday by the Iowa State Police Department. Cyclone freshman football player Dallas Taylor-Cortez — one of the four players suspended by coach Matt Campbell last Friday — was charged with harassment, 3rd degree, a simple misdemeanor. Tyciera Whitaker-Wells, a sophomore in early childhood education, was charged with a False Report to a Public Entity.
Iowa State Police Chief Michael Newton said Taylor-Cortez used a laser pointer attached to a BB gun, “threatened, intimidated or alarmed” at least one individual and caused others to run from the area.
The other three players suspended indefinitely by Iowa State were receivers Joseph Scates and Tayvonn Kyle and cornerback Jaeveyon Morton – all true freshmen. None of them had been charged as of Tuesday.
