A Penn State freshman running back has been charged by campus police with breaking a window in a dormitory.

According to police, Akeel Lynch, 18, was charged Friday with criminal mischief for breaking the window in Shulze Hall on Nov. 16 when he allegedly kicked it.

A school spokesman wouldn’t say whether Lynch has already been disciplined by the team for the incident or whether he may face future discipline.

Lynch faces a preliminary hearing March 27.

He did not play in any games this past season. The incident happened the night before the team's home game against Indiana.

Lynch was recruited from Athol Springs, N.Y.
