Police: Coach held after disturbance involving team members
SOUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (AP) Police say a University of Rhode Island assistant basketball coach has been arrested at a concert following a disturbance involving team members.
WPRI-TV reports Tyron Boswell faces misdemeanor charges of disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. The university says Boswell has been placed on administrative leave.
South Kingstown police say officers responded Thursday to a reported fight in a men’s bathroom at the Ryan Center. Police say Boswell yelled at officers who were trying to break up the disturbance and agitated a crowd that had gathered outside the bathroom.
