Kaitlin Gillespie The Daily Evergreen

A Washington State University football player was taken to the hospital early today after a party apparently ended in a fight involving members of the Cougar and University of Idaho football teams.

The Daily Evergreen student newspaper at WSU reported that Mansel Simmons, a redshirt sophomore wide receiver, was taken to Pullman Regional Hospital after someone allegedly punched him in the face about 1 a.m. today at a party near the corner of Ash and Maple streets, according to Pullman police.

Police believe the assailant is also a football player but did not indicate which team he is on.

In a related incident, someone damaged the car belonging to the girlfriend of UI senior wide receiver Kyren Watt, police said.

Watts had been using the car, and members of the party broke the rearview mirror and window, Pullman police said. It is unclear if members of the football teams were involved in the vandalism.
