Another player charged

Kutztown University says four football players have been suspended from the team, and two were jailed on aggravated assault and other charges in a fight at a Bloomsburg fraternity, that left two people injured, one critically.

Online court records don't list attorneys for 20-year-old players Angel Cruz, of Robesonia, and Justin Wieder, of Quakertown. Also suspended from the team but not criminally charged are 20-year-old Eric Condron, of Philadelphia, and 18-year-old Jake Wygant of Whitehall Township, Lehigh County.

Police and the university say the fight broke out when the players went to a closed fraternity party near the Bloomsburg University campus about 1 a.m. Feb. 23 and refused to leave.

Two 19-year-old Bloomsburg students, Donald Hoover, of Robesonia, and Jackie Lithgow of Carlisle, were hospitalized with Lithgow last reported in critical condition.
