San Diego St. Aztecs defensive lineman Dontrell Onuoha has been charged with two felonies after allegedly beating a victim on the San Diego State campus on September 25. He will be arraigned later this month.
From the San Diego Union Tribune:
Onuoha garnered 13 tackles in a back-up role last season, but he is expected to play a prominent role on the defense this season.
Onuoha is the latest in a line of Aztec football players to run into trouble. Former Aztec receiver Jay Waddell was a suspect under investigation by police over a separate beating incident before being dismissed from the team. Recent transfer Dillon Baxter was also dismissed from the team for unspecified team violations.
