Pitt backup QB Gonzalez's arraignment date set

College Football Videos

Tuesday, July 12, 2011
 

Pitt backup quarterback Anthony Gonzalez will be arraigned Sept. 1 — two days before the first game of the season — in the Court of Common Pleas in Easton on charges of possessing a small amount of marijuana and fake identification, and underage drinking.

Gonzalez, 20, waived his right for a preliminary hearing Monday in front of District Justice Nancy Matos Gonzalez in Bethlehem. The marijuana charge is a misdemeanor, and the others are summary violations, according to court papers.

Gonzalez was cited May 20 while he was a passenger in a car that was stopped by police in South Bethlehem.

Pitt coach Todd Graham suspended Gonzalez, one of only three quarterbacks on the roster, at the time of the incident. His status hasn't changed, a team spokesman said.

Pitt is scheduled to open training Aug. 8.

Notes: Pitt announced kickoff times for its first two games. The Panthers will host Buffalo at 6 p.m. Sept 3, then will welcome Maine at 1 p.m. Sept. 10. ... Senior defensive end Brandon Lindsey (Aliquippa) is on the watch list for the Lombardi Award, which honors the nation's top offensive or defensive lineman.
