Pe’Shon Howard arrested outside College Park restaurant

Maryland point guard Pe’Shon Howard has had a tough year.

After missing most of the 2011-2012 basketball season with a broken leg and a knee injury, the soon-to-be junior point guard saw action in 14 games this year averaging 6.5 points-per-game for first year coach Mark Turgeon.

But it got even harder for Howard Sunday morning, as he was arrested on charges of disorderly conduct outside Shanghai Cafe in College Park.

Howard appeared to be in the wrong place at the wrong time, as he was apparently yelling over participants in a fight outside the establishment, but reportedly was not involved in the scuffle.

He was asked by police to step back, but refused initially. He was taken into custody, but was not held for long Sunday.

He will appear in court when a date is scheduled.

Howard’s incident stems off assistant coach Dalonte Hill being arrested on a DUI-charge earlier in the year.

The Diamondback was one of the first to report the story after the University police released a statement.
