— A freshman football player at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was arrested early Sunday after police say he got into a fight with two other men, knocking out one man's teeth and giving the other man a black eye.

Nicholas Apostolos Weiler, 18, was charged with simple assault; felony assault inflicting injury; resisting, delaying or obstructing a police officer; possession of a fictitious ID; and underage possession of alcohol.

The fight broke out in a parking lot of East Rosemary Street, and Weiler was arrested around 3:30 a.m.

Authorities at the Orange County jail said Weiler posted bond and was released Sunday after spending about two hours in jail. His first court appearance is scheduled for Monday afternoon.

The university's athletics website lists Weiler as a punter/kicker.

    Just for TODD NELSON; STAFF WRITER, N&O: It would be comical if someone would accost all you N&O liberals after investing in a few "black talons."

    Now, for the majority of the NC State garbage continuum. Give the guy a break. The situation could have ended up as a few years ago. K-Mart could not keep men's underwear "in stock" due to the fact that the NC State basketball team reverted to their true character---stealing. Upon State's entry at Cameron, they were "showered" with men's underwear. In order to be correct, the students should have hurled Missy (age 3 or 4) panties to these perverted shirt lifters, poofs and whiz zealots.

    Talk it over with "Brick", your football coach. His personality resembles a stained, used Wilbert Vault. He may not munch one, but probably would hold one in his mouth until a herty-gerty could be summoned.

    Wish we could see aggression like this on the field. Legal hitting of course!!

  • StunGunn Sep 24, 2012

    Well, he's been suspended from the team. Glad Fedora isn't tolerating this type of behavior. I trust Fedora to have all the facts before making the decision to suspend the guy.

    There is a proud tradition of beatings by football players on or near Rosemary St. Just in the good ol' days they seemed to evaporate into the ether.

    - July of 2000, Julius Peppers was arrested for assaulting a fellow UNC student near Franklin Street.

    By TODD NELSON; STAFF WRITER

    bar.

    The case, scheduled for trial in Orange County District Court, may finally clear up what happened
    in the melee at 2:30 a.m. Dec. 5 outside Gotham, an East Franklin Street club. ------------------------------------

    He looks like "Wolverine" at first glance. That's reason enough to NOT get in his way. LOL

    Think he is a walkon like most kickers.

  • heelsforever Sep 23, 2012

    That's one badazz kicker beating up two dudes. Seriously though, Coach Fedora punish him hard and let him know this is his only chance; there will not be a second.

    I agree to a degree. I always told my kids to walk away from a fight any time that it was possible, but never let me catch you running away from one.
