Keenan Jones Charged

Rod Ohira writes that Keenan Jones has been charged with two felonies:
A University of Hawai'i football player recently granted a fifth year of eligibility by the NCAA was charged Saturday with unauthorized entry into a motor vehicle and second-degree assault, both felony offenses.

The new charges against 22-year-old Keenan Jones compounds his mounting problems.
Details are in the article. As for his status with the team:
"He will be suspended indefinitely until the formal investigation is completed," UH football coach Greg McMackin said today through a spokesman of the Jones' situation.

UPDATE (3/28/08): Keenan Jones talks about the charges brought against him in this video segment from KHNL.

LATE LATE UPDATE (4/3/2009): Jones participated in UH's Pro Day and told Stephen Tsai that all charges were dropped.
Jones, a cornerback, was supposed to be a senior during the 2008 season. But a year ago, he was placed on indefinite suspension after being arrested on suspicion of domestic abuse. Although the case was eventually dismissed, Jones never was reinstated.

"I was never charged," Jones said yesterday. "They dropped everything. But it took almost a whole year for them to do even that."

Jones eventually returned to his family's home in Los Angeles.

"I went back to my dad's house and got my head on straight," Jones said.
