Thus was the lesson learned last weekend by David Gertson, a red-shirt freshman defensive lineman for Portland State University. Gertson got busted in the wee morning hours of November 22 after he allegedly entered the Blumel Hall dorm and inappropriately touched a girl on the buttocks while hugging her.
Security was called and Gertson then also tussled with officers, one of whom ended up getting cut from a broken bottle that was in Gertson’s backpack.
This is a 50 pointer. It crosses the mid-level boundary because it’s a giant guy entering a woman’s room uninvited. The scuffle with security officers is a college-football rite of passage, but the rest we all can do without.
