Gavin Stark of the Missouri baseball team, come on down, you’ve just won the Best College Sports Arrest of the Week Award! Stark, a backup infielder, briefly wreaked havoc on the Missouri campus Monday night, randomly knocking a laptop out of a student’s hand before assaulting him, and then breaking into the student center and busting things up. From the police report:
“We made contact with Stark, and he assumed a fighting position with our officers then attempted to run away,” Weimer said. “His fists were up and he was yelling profanity at the officers.”
He was arrested a short distance away after a brief pursuit.
“Police believe he was intoxicated at the time,” Weimer said.
Believe he was intoxicated? That’s comical. Also funny: Stark has appeared in 13 games this year for the Tigers and is 2-for-22 at the plate. So he now has more charges against him this season – second-degree assault, first-degree burglary, two counts of first-degree property damage and resisting arrest – than hits.
