University of Minnesota player accused of assault
By Taryn Thomas
KARE 11 is reporting that a University of Minnesota Gopher football player was accused of assault on Halloween night. Neena Rachael accused the player of assault.
According to Rachael, she was out with friends and got a ride home with them and the player was the designated driver. She said she had never met him before. Rachael got into an argument with the football player's girlfriend.
Allegedly this is when the football player got involved. Rachael said that he threw her across the wall and she fell. Then he allegedly picked her up by the wrist and threw against the wall six more times.
The Minnesota Daily is reporting that the accused football player is Nathan Tow-Arnett, a 27-year-old sophomore that is a defensive back for the Gophers. The Daily also named the victim as Neena Kurian. I am unsure which name is correct.
The police say that Tow-Arnett and Rachael (Kurian) both have different stories and they are still investigating.
