Breaking! WSU Fan Facing Charge for Bottle Throw

A fan may be charged with reckless endangerment for allegedly throwing a water bottle at a Pac-10 official after the WSU men's basketball game Saturday. Pullman Police Cmdr. Chris Tennant said the incident occurred after officials made a controversial call near the end of the game. A Beasley Coliseum staff member escorted the fan to police and reported that the individual had thrown a bottle at a specific official, Tennant said. Officers identified the individual, but did not arrest him or her, so a name was not released. "You can't be throwing things at officials," Tennant said. He also said the fan must have been fairly unlucky to get pulled out of the crowd by the coliseum staff. "You have to specifically say this person threw this object," he said. Reckless endangerment is a misdemeanor, Tennant said. The department will forward charges to the Whitman County Prosecutor's Office -- WSU Daily Evergreen.
