Murray State quarterback Jeff Ehrhardt was charged with pushing a campus police officer and taking his ticket book. The athletic director called this "a prank gone bad."
Ehrhardt, a 20-year-old sophomore, was arrested Wednesday and charged with second-degree robbery. He surrendered to the campus public safety office and returned the ticket book after a witness identified him.
The charge carries a potential prison term of up to 10 years.
According to the police report, Ehrhardt said he was bet $20 he wouldn't take such action against the officer.
Pranks have changed a lot since we've been in college. We used to bet kids they couldn't run through the quad naked singing Barry Manilow or try to trick a Washington State student into thinking they were smart.
Now it's robbing cops at gunpoint dressed up as ex-presidents.What? He just took his ticket book? And it was a campus cop? Up to 10 years in the clink? It's a good thing he's a superstar quarterback at a D-1 powerhouse.
