OSU Players Have Charges Dropped


Byline: The Register-Guard

CORVALLIS - Officials have announced that two Oregon State football players, Jimtavis Walker and Star Paddock, will not face charges resulting from an incident last winter.

REGIONAL ROUNDUP

Walker, a junior transfer from Florida who is expected to be a vital part of the Beavers' running game at tailback this fall, and Paddock, a reserve senior running back, were alleged to have robbed and assaulted a Corvallis taxi driver on Feb. 11.

John Haroldson, the chief deputy district attorney in Benton County, said that given the evidence the state would not be able to meet the burden of proof and the case was withdrawn.

Corvallis police said Walker and Paddock attempted to pay the taxi driver with marijuana but were refused. They then offered to pay with a credit card, police said, and during the incident Paddock was said to have pushed the cab driver back into his car.

The two players were suspended from team activities after the incident. Oregon State coach Mike Riley reinstated Walker and Paddock for spring practice in early April.

Walker and Paddock may face further punishment if athletic department officials determine so under the new conduct code, which suspends players for being cited, not convicted, for criminal misconduct starting with the first offense.

Retiring UO coach

accepts new position

Fred Litzenberger, an assistant basketball coach at Oregon for 10 seasons until announcing his retirement from the Ducks earlier this spring, has been named associate head men's basketball coach at Vanguard University, a school of 2,300 students located in Costa Mesa, Calif.

The 57-year-old Litzenberger said in announcing his departure from Oregon that he wouldn't rule out staying in coaching at some level. He turned down the head coaching job at Fresno Pacific this spring.
