Izbicki faces two misdemeanor charges

Posted by Bob Condotta

UW redshirt freshman tight end Chris Izbicki was charged with two misdemeanor crimes today and will be arrainged in King County District Court in Burien on Aug. 14.

Izbicki was charged with criminal trespass in the second degree and minor in possession of liquor after an incident on July 20. Both took place while Izbicki was attending a concert --- the KUBE Summer Jam --- at the White River Amphiteater.

News of this leaked today after UW coach Tyrone Willingham held his press conference on campus so it is uncertain if Izbicki faces any punishment from the team. A graduate of Lake Washington High, he is contending for a backup spot behind starter Michael Gottlieb.

According to a police report, Izbicki was charged with criminal trespass for attempting to get into a restricted VIP area and failing to leave after being asked to do so twice. He was then given a breathalyzer test and recorded a reading of .241, resulting in the second charge.

Way to go Chris, lets hope you aren't the focus of a story eight years from now.

ESPN is reporting that EJ is academically ineligible. What, if anything, can he do in order to play this season? What is the earliest he can play?

He got too drunk and wandered where he shouldn't have. Sounds like no kind of a big deal. If he wasn't so big they'd have just tossed him out and we never would have heard about it.

Geez Ty, this is all your fault. If you only would have gotten Chris a VIP pass and a fake ID he would have been in the clear.

Just like it's your fault with the Bellevue Boyz your vendetta's need to stop!

he was drunk and made a stupid but minor mistake. welcome to college Chris. Punish him accordingly and let's move on.

Inevitably, i feel like this will get blown up cause after all, only college football thugs get drunk and party. I mean we did nothing of the sort back when we were in school...

I should've gotten a MIP at least once in high school and once in college. Guess it was luck (though if you're in an area where you shouldn't be, it's best to obey people lest something like a MIP happen).

I may have gotten up to .241 too but don't have it on record. However, .241 is a lot and thankfully he wasn't close to an automobile.

When you're up to .241 you're likely blacked out, and probably not capable of listening to people.

Pathetic post - Izibicki failed "to leave after being nasked to do so twice" - because he was to drunk to be rational and you joke about it?? Don't make excuses for peoples stupidity, it does them NO GOOD.

He always said Shockey was his role model...

.241 is really drunk

being kicked out of a concert isn't a big deal

What joke are you talking about?

And even if I or someone else were to make a joke about the situation, what's the problem with that? Should we make every post on this site in a sanctimonious, paternalistic tone like you?

...seeing that Izbicki is second string...he'll be suspended for one-game...if he was a starter...if get off with a "stern lecture"...

If he performs on the field he won't have to try and get into V.I.P...he'll automatically be in there..and .241 that has to be a misprint the guy would be in a coma if he was that drunk..not to defend him totally but the cops at summer jam, were being A**H****..your typical KCPD..but let this play out in court, before we make any judgements!!!!

He's an assault, one car accident and a proven talent away from being Jeremy Stevens.

.241 indicates that Chris likely has a drinking problem. Hopefully, part of Willingham's punishment includes getting him some counselling. It is also concerning that this is happening before he is legally able to drink in this state.

0.20 BAC: Felling dazed, confused or otherwise disoriented. May need help to stand or walk. If you injure yourself you may not feel the pain. Some people experience nausea and vomiting at this level. The gag reflex is impaired and you can choke if you do vomit. Blackouts are likely at this level so you may not remember what has happened.

0.25 BAC: All mental, physical and sensory functions are severely impaired. Increased risk of asphyxiation from choking on vomit and of seriously injuring yourself by falls or other accidents.

0.30 BAC: STUPOR. You have little comprehension of where you are. You may pass out suddenly and be difficult to awaken.

0.35 BAC: Coma is possible. This is the level of surgical anesthesia.

0.40 BAC and up: Onset of coma, and possible death due to
respiratory arrest.
