Woes continue for NU wrestling

Another NU wrestler was arrested on Sunday morning and is accused of aggravated battery.  Romero J. Cotton, who is listed on the NU wrestling roster as a 185-pound freshman, allegedly attacked his mother’s 45 year-old boyfriend who suffered facial fractures and an injury to his spine.  The assault occurred in Hutchinson, Kansas–Cotton’s hometown.  The victim was hospitalized as of Monday and is listed in fair condition.

In a statement to The Hutchinson News, NU wrestling coach Mark Manning said, “We’re aware of it.  We’re on top of it and we’re handling it. Other than that, I don’t have any comment.”
