Huguely reportedly attacked teammate

By Washington Post editors

University of Virginia lacrosse player George Huguely attacked a sleeping teammate last year, leaving his face bruised in an altercation that took place after a night of partying, according to three sources with knowledge of the incident.

Lacrosse Coach Dom Starsia told players about the February 2009 altercation at the next practice and disciplined Huguely and the injured player, though it is unclear what form that punishment took, according to one of the sources, a former U-Va. men’s lacrosse player who was on the team at the time.

The former player said Huguely attacked the other player after hearing that his teammate had kissed women’s lacrosse player Yeardley Love, who was dating Huguely at the time. That version of events could not be corroborated with the other two sources, who said they did not know what sparked the attack.
