Former Kent Roosevelt Quarterback Suspended from College Football Program

Tra'Von Chapman was suspended indefinitely from the University of Pittsburgh football program after there was a confrontation with a woman he knew at a Kent apartment.

Tra'Von Chapman, 18, of Kent has been charged with assault, a first-degree misdemeanor, and unlawful restraint, a third-degree misdemeanor, according to Portage County Municipal Court records, after an altercation with a woman on Spaulding Drive April 26.

Bond was posted and Chapman was released. The former Kent Roosevelt quarterback has a pre-trial hearing scheduled for May 28.

Chapman, who graduated high school early and enrolled at Pitt in January, was visiting his father, former Kent State assistant football coach Thad Jemison, before the two were to drive to Cincinnati to see his mother, a source said in this Plain Dealer story

When correcting someone's grammar, it is usually advisable to make sure yours is correct. "Seems your fell into a little buffoonery yourself!" - Seems YOU fell into a little buffoonery yourself! ??

Your not only attacking a race, your a loser attacking a winner...the President of the United States happens to be a very intelligent man that was elected twice to the most challenging job on the planet.
