Buzz: Trading One Felony For AnotherPosted by rtmsf on October 6th, 2009
The Torrington (CT) Police Department had a busy day impacting the college basketball landscape in the last 24 hours. The first blurb of news was that Duquesne sophomore guard BJ Monteiro, a backup expected to play a bigger role this season, was charged with larceny of $1400 worth of goods, including an Ipod, a laptop and some cash. Monteiro is originally from the area, having attended Crosby HS in nearby Waterbury. Soon after this news hit, the Torrington PD was at it again, this time announcing that it was dropping assault and breach of the peace charges against Maryland freshman forward, Jordan Williams. This incident stemmed from a fight between Williams’ girlfriend and another girl, but police said nobody was injured and all parties were willing to let things slide. Torrington is Williams’ hometown. So does Torrington have a reputation for troublemakers or is this just a really odd coincidence? We’re going with the latter.
