@Auburn P.D.

A Cortland defenseman was arrested and charged with second-degree gang assault on Monday, first reported in The Citizen (Auburn, N.Y.) 

Jonathon T. Foltz, 21, was among three arrested in relation to an incident that occurred early in the morning over Memorial Day Weekend in Auburn, Foltz's hometown according to the Cortland lacrosse roster. Foltz played in 19 games this spring for the Red Dragons, starting four and leading the NCAA semifinalists with 19 caused turnovers.

Cortland officials said Monday morning that Foltz has been suspended from the team indefinitely, pending the resolution of the investigation.

According to the reports, Foltz and two others – who are not listed on Cortland's lacrosse roster – are charged with the assault of Shane Maneri, 42, of Atlanta at 2:45 a.m. on the morning of May 25. Maneri suffered a broken right tibia as well as multiple bruises in the assault.
