Police: College Soccer Player Assaulted Teammate over Award
BRIDGEPORT, Conn. (AP) — A University of Bridgeport women's soccer player has been charged with assaulting a teammate over what police say was a perceived snub at an awards ceremony.
The Connecticut Post reports that Danielle Puddefoot is accused of head-butting a teammate in a dorm room on April 30 following the team's annual sports awards banquet.
Police say the 22-year old senior from Slough, England, was upset after not receiving an award and confronted teammates at a post-banquet party.
The injured teammate was treated at a hospital for swelling on the right side of her face and two black eyes.
Messages seeking comment from Puddefoot and the soccer team were left Wednesday with the school's sports information director.
Puddefoot's number is not listed in the school's student directory.
