Zach Koepp arrested early Sunday for obstructing public servant


FROM PULLMAN -- We have a brief item to pass along about the arrest of WSU long-snapper Zach Koepp.


Here's what we just filed for tomorrow's paper ...

PULLMAN – Washington State long-snapper Zach Koepp was arrested early Sunday morning on a charge of obstructing a public servant.

Pullman Police spokesman Cmdr. Chris Tennant said police received a complaint of a person throwing rocks at the Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity house at about 12:31 a.m. Sunday. Koepp was seen in the area when police responded, Tennant said, and fled on foot before slipping in the mud and hitting his head on a metal grate covering a gas meter.

Tennant said Koepp was cited and released, then transported voluntarily to Pullman Regional Hospital for further evaluation. Tennant said Koepp’s injury was not believed to be serious, saying that it appeared Koepp “just cut his head a little bit.”

Obstructing a public servant is a gross misdemeanor. A WSU spokesman said coaches had been notified of the incident.

Koepp, a Milford, Iowa native who is slated to be a redshirt senior this season, took over the team’s long-snapping duties in 2011 and appeared in 10 games before suffering a concussion against Arizona State.
