Update: JayVaughn Pinkston Incident

UPDATE (Monday Night): Jay Wright has spoken. He says Pinkston will continue to practice with the team, but his status is uncertain for Friday's opener.

UPDATE: Det. Sgt. Jeffrey Maurer said Upper Merion police are investigating an incident that took place at a rental property Saturday. No charges have been filed and no arrests were made. Police don't anticipate a decision until later this week.

Villanova has been made aware of the incident involving JayVaughn Pinkston, and will review the situation according to The Associated Press. From people I've spoken with, meetings are being held today.

The Nova Blog was first to report the rumour yesterday, and now it appears that this is a confirmed event. The most latest details from our sources suggest Pinkston was involved in an altercation at an off-campus party, but until more emerges, we're not going to speculate further than that.

The is a very serious infraction if the rumours are true, and could warrant a more lengthy suspension than Reggie Redding received last year for possession of marijuana.

We'll keep you posted as more details emerge.
