UH football players to be tried on assault charges Dec. 28


Two University of Hawaii football players waived their right to a jury trial and will have their assault charges heard by a District Court judge on Dec. 28.

Junior wide receiver Darius Bright and senior linebacker Aaron Brown were arrested Aug. 28 after police said they punched a 22-year-old soldier during a fight at the Zanzabar nightclub in Waikiki. They were charged with third-degree assault. Both football players pled not guilty on Tuesday and chose to have a non-jury trial.

They were suspended for UH’s season opener against University of Colorado on Sept. 3. 

If convicted, Brown and Bright face up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
