Assault Charges Against Husker

A prosecutor will re-file assault charges against a Nebraska offensive lineman. Tamotu “junior'' Tagoa'i is charged with third-degree assault for allegedly hitting his girlfriend in the jaw at their apartment a year ago. Lancaster County Attorney Gary Lacey said his office decided to file the charges against the husker when he failed to complete terms of a diversion program. Nebraska Coach Frank Solich says he plans to look into the matter and will take action. The 6-foot-2, 300-pound lineman from Hawaii, is scheduled for a November 7th arraignment.
