Maryland Lacrosse Player Acquitted of Assault

Posted:
MANASSAS, Va. (AP) - A University of Maryland lacrosse player has been acquitted of assault after being accused of inappropriately touching a woman at a concert.

Nineteen-year-old Benjamin Chisolm of Davidsonville, Maryland, had initially been charged with aggravated sexual battery. Police said a 49-year-old woman reported waking up on the lawn at the Jiffy Lube Live amphitheater in Bristow to find Chisolm groping her after a Zac Brown Band concert in June.

Prior to Thursday's trial in Manassas, the charges were reduced to simple assault. Chisolm was found not guilty of that charge at Thursday's trial. He was convicted of public intoxication.

Chisolm's attorney, Edward MacMahon, said the alleged victim in the case didn't even testify at the trial.

Chisolm recently completed his freshman year at Maryland.
