    A Penn State wrestler is charged with assault and resisting arrest after police said he attacked an employee of a Washington, D.C., bar who wouldn?t let him in after closing, according to court documents obtained by the CDT.

    Edward L. Ruth, 20, of Harrisburg, faces two charges of resisting arrest and one assault count stemming from the incident at 4 a.m. Aug. 6 at the bar My Brothers Place, 237 C St. NW, Washington.

    He?s scheduled for a pre-trial hearing with his attorney, George J. Lane, on Sept. 2.

    Lane could not be reached for comment late Thursday afternoon.

    Washington police said Ruth was trying to get into the bar but was told by an employee it was closed. The employee told police he asked Ruth to leave, but Ruth flipped the employee onto his back and punched him, police said.

    When police arrived, they found another employee restraining Ruth. Ruth resisted arrest, ?flailing both his arms and attempted to run away from the officers,? police wrote in the charging document.

    Police said they told him to stop resisting, but he continued until he was eventually taken to the ground by two officers and handcuffed.

    Ruth, who was recruited by former coach Troy Sunderland, redshirted during 2009-10, Cael Sanderson's first season as coach.
    Last season, as a redshirt freshman, Ruth went 38-2, won the Big Ten title at 174 pounds and finished third at NCAAs.

    Penn State wrestling spokesman Pat Donghia declined to comment on the charges but said team officials are aware of the court date and that matter is being handled internally.

    Ruth is the second Penn State wrestler to face criminal charges this month.
    Andrew W. Long, 22, was charged with attempted rape, aggravated indecent assault and indecent assault stemming from an Aug. 12 incident.

    What was he doing out so early? 4am is when you get up to go feed the animals and get machinery ready for another day of work, not when you are trying to get drunk.

    On another note... did anyone notice the kid McIntosh pinned in Fargo just won in Europe?

    Here's hoping McIntosh keeps pushing and does well this year, redshirt or on the team.

    Sounds like Pearsall was caught buying beer for a couple of "minor" wrestlers.

    Maybe Quentin, Taylor and Frank need to have another wrestlers only meeting.

    If Pearsall was buying booze for minors - throw the book at him. He's an "adult". He knows this is not legal. Prosecute and convict and give him the maximum time in jail or prison.

    Capital punishment should be in consideration - zzyzx is right, he knew this is not legal.

    Nope, not capital punishment. But, get serious with imposing a full sentence for something too many think is harmless that too often results in serious problems for the drinkers and worse for the victims of these kids who can't handle the booze. Look at all the alcohol related problems at Penn State in the past month or so. These kids might be good wrestlers but they are mental midgets.
