Two of three charges against UMass basketball player Cady Lalanne dismissed
BELCHERTOWN (AP) — Prosecutors have dropped two of three charges against University of Massachusetts sophomore center Cady Lalanne that stemmed from a dispute with police at a campus dance.
Charges of resisting arrest and assault and battery on a police officer have been dropped at the state’s request, while a charge of disorderly conduct was converted to a civil charge, and Lalanne was fined $150.
The Republican of Springfield reports that the case was resolved on Jan. 7 and is now closed.
Lalanne was suspended for 12 days following his arrest Dec. 1. Police alleged Lalanne interfered when his friend was being removed from a dance.
He missed just one game.
Lalanne is averaging 6.1 points and 6.2 rebounds for the 11-4 Minutemen.
