PRINCETON, N.J. (AP) — Officials say Devin Cannady has been suspended from the Princeton University basketball team after throwing a punch at a campus police officer and being arrested following a confrontation at a convenience store.
Daniel Day, assistant vice president of communications, says the 22-year-old Cannady, Princeton’s leading scorer who ranks fifth on the university’s all-time scoring list, was suspended Friday.
The Mercer County Prosecutor’s Office said Cannady was arrested after a confrontation with customers and police at a campus convenience store. He faces charges of aggravated assault on a police officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
Campus police were called to the Wawa convenience store at 3:30 a.m. Friday. Officials said Cannady pushed a customer and threatened others during the incident. He later began cursing at university officers and swung a punch at one of the campus patrolmen, who ducked out of the way, authorities said. Cannady’s punch glanced off the patrolmen’s hand.
