Two CSU football players arrested at party

By Mike Brohard, For the Camera

Two Colorado State football players -- including starting middle linebacker James Skelton -- were among the four arrests made Saturday at a large pool party at the Rams Pointe apartment complex, according to a release issued today by the Fort Collins Police Department.

The other player arrested was reserve defensive tackle Zach Tiedgen, a junior. Skelton, a senior, was cited for third degree assault, while Tiedgen was cited for disorderly conduct. Both are misdemeanors. According to Rita Davis of the Fort Collins Police Services, no other arrests are anticipated.

The party, which was estimated to draw an estimated crowd of 2,000-4,000, resulted in 10 people being transported to the hospital for various reasons. It was broken up roughly three hours after the Rams concluded a closed practice at the Lubick Field at Hughes Stadium at 1 p.m.

Colorado State is preparing for its season opener Saturday at New Mexico (4 p.m.). Head coach Steve Fairchild said in a release the team is looking into the situation, and will comment on possible discipline later.

"I'm fully aware of the situation and have been in contact with everyone involved since Saturday," Fairchild said in the release. "I'm gathering facts right now, and I'm not going to comment further until a more appropriate time."

Fairchild's first weekly press conference is slated for 1 p.m. today.

The Rams already have three players suspended for the opener -- Byron Steele, Kivon Cartwright and Ezra Thompson -- for earlier violations of team rules.
