Maryland Football player charged with Assault and Sex Offense

COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) - A Maryland football player faces misdemeanor charges stemming from an incident last October at a College Park bar.
Charging documents say starting strong safety Marcus Wimbush is charged with two counts of second-degree assault and a fourth-degree sex offense. Wimbush was charged in March for the alleged offenses October 31st at the Cornerstone Grill and Loft.
His lawyer, Keith Hiller, says the charges are not related to a fight at the bar that night that involved a group of Maryland players. That fight resulted in a one-game suspension for four players and sanctions against others for violating team rules.
Court documents say Wimbush allegedly grabbed a woman's buttocks. When she told him to stop, he allegedly grabbed the neck of a woman who intervened.
His trial is set for January 26th
