Giddens is Charged in Moon Brawl Incident

JR Giddens has been charged with two misdemeanor crimes, battery and disorderly conduct, arising from the May 19 Moon Bar brawl that led to his transfer from KU to New Mexico. Only Giddens and Jeremiah Creswell were charged; none of the others involved in the incident will face charges. You can read about it here. The prosecutor will take media questions at a press conference this afternoon. We should know more then.

Let the flood of negative comments begin. The close timing of Stewart's injury to Giddens' charges will be called a "problem" without regard to the truth. One blogger already asks "What's the matter with Kansas?"

Fortunately, all of the comments point out the truth to the blogger. Again, let's keep it all in perspective.
