More Trouble Bruin in L.A.
No shortage of trouble for players in Los Angeles. Following USC's lead, three former UCLA players were charged with assault stemming from an alleged attack on a man in a Denny's restaurant in Westwood on April 23. Maurice Drew, left, Ricky Manning Jr. and Tyler Ebell allegedly were among a group that harassed a man working on a laptop computer at the restaurant. When the victim complained to the restaurant's manager, he was attacked. Drew was UCLA's rushing leader the past three seasons. Manning was a defensive back from 1999-2002 and Ebell, who led the team in rushing in 2002, finished his college career last year at Texas El Paso. Two current members of the team, linebacker John Hale and defensive lineman Jess Ward, also are facing assault charges from a February incident. They have a pre-preliminary hearing date for June 12. All of this is not going over well with the folks at Bruins Nation.
