Freshman Ahmad Bradshaw will not be with the Virginia football team this year, Cavaliers Coach Al Groh announced yesterday.
The announcement, made in a one-sentence news release, did not offer any additional information, and school officials said they had no further explanation in the matter.
The announcement comes less than a week after Bradshaw, who is taking classes at Virginia this summer, was arrested and charged with underage possession of alcohol and obstruction of justice, both misdemeanors.
The Daily Progress of Charlottesville reported Bradshaw was asked by a police officer at 1:50 a.m. on July 17 what was in the plastic cup in his hand.
He replied that it was an alcoholic beverage and gave the name and date of birth of a deceased person when the officer asked for identification, the newspaper reported.
Bradshaw then ran away, but officers chased him down, and he resisted their attempts to take him into custody and was taken to the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail. . . .
The retrial in Montgomery County (Va.) Circuit Court of suspended Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick has been changed from Nov. 1-2 to Jan. 10-11, Vick's attorney, Marc Long, said yesterday.
Vick and teammates Mike Imoh (Robinson High) and Brenden Hill were convicted in mid-May of three misdemeanor charges each of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, stemming from a late-January incident in the apartment Vick and Hill share.
Imoh's trial is scheduled for Sept. 16-17; Hill's for Oct. 21-22.
