'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Pitt redshirt freshman Lamar Patterson was charged by Manheim Township police, Lancaster County, following an alleged incident in which he is accused of leaving a restaurant without paying his bill.

Patterson, 19, is charged with providing false identification to law enforcement, theft of services and carrying a false identification card, according to Manheim Township police.

Pitt officials said they are aware of the incident and are reviewing the situation but could not make any further comment. They wouldn't speculate on Patterson's status for today's game against Cincinnati.

Police say Patterson, who played at McCaskey High School in Lancaster, and two others left the House of Pasta on Dec. 28 without paying a $30 bill.
