JAMESTOWN, N.D. (NewsDakota.com) Authorities say charges maybe pending against a former Jamestown College football player.

Jamestown City Attorney Leo Ryan said a 19-year-old Texas man faces a simple assault charge stemming from an altercation Saturday night in the 200 block of 6th avenue southeast.

Ryan says police officers were dispatched to a call that a male had been jumped and was assaulted. The victim was a 21-year-old “Jimmies” football player.

Jamestown College President Bob Badal said, “We really don’t comment on the individual student disciplinary situations in the media, so we don’t have any comment…”

Jamestown Police Chief Scott Edinger said so far, no arrests were made in this case. A simple assault charge is a Class B misdemeanor, punishable by 30 days in jail and a $1,000 fine.
