In an almost ironic twist of fate, the day after University of Massachusetts football player Spencer Sinclair Ridenhour for lewd behavior -- including exposing himself to a female jogger, sexually assaulting a Smith College student, and masturbating in a car -- the Pennsylvania State Daily Collegian is reporting similar charges being pressed against a Penn State basketball player for his lewd behavior.

"Penn State Police filed charges yesterday against Penn State basketball player Stanley Pringle in connection with an incident involving public masturbation that occurred last Thursday in Pattee Library," Lauren Boyer reported yesterday for the (Penn State) Daily Collegian.

According to the (Penn State) Daily Collegian, "in the original incident report, police said the offender sat behind a woman in the stacks section of the library, attempted to start a conversation with her and then began masturbating. The investigation, including interviews with the victim, yielded a description detailing a college-aged black man with a medium build, about 6-feet-2-inches tall, and wearing a gray sweatshirt"

Oddly enough, Ridenhour -- a 22 year-old transfer student -- originally came to UMass from Penn State.

On a side note, the (Penn State) Daily Collegian is reporting that Pringle is not being investigated as a suspect in an ongoing investigation of "serial masturbation" on campus.
