MANSFIELD - Ricky E. Webb, 19, of Levittown, was charged by university police following an altercation with a university student recently.
According to documents filed at District Judge James Carlson's office, Webb was charged with disorderly conduct and harassment after police were dispatched to Maple Manor, Room 215B, on the university campus Nov. 1, for a report of a fight in a resident's room.
According to police, resident John Brockington Jr. said Webb interfered in an argument between himself and Nathanial McCollum regarding the return of a computer memory device that Brockington had borrowed, by allegedly telling McCollum to "jump him" as the two argued in the student lounge.
When Brockington went back to his room and tried to leave again, he was confronted by Webb, along with co-defendant Semaj Rice, and McCollum, police said.
Brockington's resident assistant Benjamin McMullen ordered the group to leave the area and Brockington returned to his room, only to hear a knock at the door, and a person saying it was the resident assistant. When he opened the door, it was Webb and Rice, who forced open the door, pushing Brockington back and hitting him in the face with a closed fist and tripping him to the floor, police said.
Brockington's leg was in a cast from a previous injury. Brockington was able to grab Webb when Rice began to hit him, and he attempted to hold them both while shouting to his roommate to call the police.
Webb was released on $5,000 bail and he waived his preliminary hearing Wednesday. His county court arraignment was set for Dec. 3.
