ASU Wrestling's Undie Run Attackers Referred to County Attorney's Office
Authorities have referred the cases of two members of the Arizona State University wrestling team who were caught on camera attacking a man at the school's annual "Undie Run" to the Maricopa County Attorney's Office.
ASU police Commander James Hardina tells New Times that the ASU Police Department has handed off the cases of Te Edwards and Carlos Castro to the MCAO with the recommended charge of disorderly conduct for both men.
See the video of Edwards and Castro attacking the man below.
Taking four steps before sucker-punching a guy who's not even looking may seem a little more serious than disorderly conduct, but that's not necessarily the charge the two men would face.

Jerry Cobb, spokesman for the MCAO, tells New Times that prosecutors haven't reviewed the case yet, and it's possible that more serious charges -- like assault -- could be filed against the two wrestlers.
