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.
