Calvin Daniels, a freshman tight end on the Stony Brook football team, was brought into custody last night at approximately 8 p.m. by Stony Brook University Police at the Jacob K. Javits Lecture Center after an incident that occurred on the night of Nov. 15.

The 18-year-old Daniels was seen climbing over the fence out of the construction site on Toll Drive with beer on his person, according to University Police Chief Robert Lenahan.  After officers started to question him, he proceeded to shove the officer and run away, sending the officers into pursuit.

Lenahan said Daniels got away that night, but they were able to identify him since the encounter and made the arrest on Thursday, Dec. 4. He was brought into custody without incident.

Daniels did not play this season because he was redshirted.

In a statement, Assistant Director of Athletic Communications Adam Gutes said “we are aware of the situation and [are] gathering the facts.”

At this time, any potential charges to be brought against Daniels are unknown.

    All the charges were dropped. I know Daniels first hand and would really appreciate if this article could be taken down. Will not hesitate to continue to contact until this is taken down. Please email me with any questions or concerns.

    In your bio you have a grammar error. It should be “during his freshman year” not “during my freshman year”
