Details are now emerging from an alleged Washington State University football locker room fight. WSU Police were contacted Thursday afternoon by a Cougar football player who said he suffered a broken jaw when he was sucker punched by another player. The alleged assault occurred Tuesday morning when 18 year old defensive lineman Emmitt Su’a-Kalio hit the victim. WSU Police worked with Cougar football coaches who brought Su’a-Kalio to the police station Thursday night where he was arrested and booked for felony second degree assault. The freshman from Samoa is in the Whitman County Jail awaiting his first appearance which is expected Friday afternoon. The injured player underwent surgery in Spokane to have his jaw wired shut. The WSU football team is currently on its way to Berkley to face the Cal Bears tomorrow.
