More Evidence of Lawlessness Comes Out About Duke Lacrosse

The NY Times reported today that Duke Blue Devil, Collin Finnerty, had assault charges that were brought upon him and then later dismissed for dropping slurs while busting a dude’s lip and bruising his chin. This all happened last fall in Washington.
He and two of his teammates from high school lacrosse were arrested on Nov. 5 in Washington. At 2:30 a.m. that day, Jeffrey O. Bloxgom told the police that the men had "punched him in the face and body, because he told them to stop calling him gay and other derogatory names," according to records at the Superior Court of the District of Columbia.

Bloxgom also said that the three men "without provocation had attacked him, busting his lip and bruising his chin." He was treated for minor injuries.
The Times goes on to report that this news of Finnerty comes after a local Durham paper reported that of the 47 members of the Duke lacrosse team, 15 had “records in Durham County of offenses like public urination and underage drinking."

"Finnerty, a sophomore, was not one of them.”
