Three Pitt Players Have Misdemeanor Charges Reduced
Back in November, three starting Pittsburgh football players — running back Ray Graham, wide receiver Devin Street and defensive back Lafayette Pitts – were charged with assault and conspiracy for an incident that occurred the month before.

The alleged victim claimed that he was surrounded by the three players, and that Street punched him in the head. No charges were filed and Pitt did not issue suspensions, although the trio was ordered to appear for a preliminary hearing on Jan. 9.

Per the AP, the three entered an agreement to reduce their charges of misdemeanor assault and conspiracy to disorderly conduct. The reduced charge carries up to a $ 300 fine and all three must complete community service by April 15 for the reduction to take effect.

Graham missed the Panthers’ BBVA Compass Bowl appearance, but finished as the team’s leading rusher with 1,042 yards and 11 touchdowns. Street finished with 73 receptions, most on the team, 975 yards and five touchdowns.
