University of Maryland men’s basketball player Pe’Shon Howard was arrested and cited for disorderly conduct for his role in a fight outside a College Park restaurant early Sunday.
Police responded to a fight in front of Shanghai Cafe on Baltimore Avenue, where they found Howard shouting at an individual believed to have started the scuffle. Police said Howard was not actually involved in the fight.
Howard was repeatedly asked to stop yelling but did not do so, according to police.
The incident marks the second arrest for the men’s basketball program this year. Assistant coach Dalonte Hill was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence in January.
