2 CSU Football Players Among Those Cited At Party

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (CBS4) - Two football players on the Colorado State Rams were arrested at a large pool party over the weekend in Fort Collins.

Police say the back-to-school bash was heavily promoted on Facebook and held at an off-campus apartment complex, located at 2250 W. Elizabeth.

As many as 4,000 people were there, and in a video posted on YouTube young people are seen in swimsuits dancing to music and jumping in the pool.

The Fort Collins Coloradoan reports officers were overwhelmed by drunk partiers.

James Skelton, 21, the Rams' starting middle linebacker, was cited for third degree assault.

Zachary Tiedgen, 21, is a backup defensive lineman. He was cited for disorderly conduct.

Daniel Rosselot, 20, was also cited for third degree assault. A fourth person, Dillon Lawrence, 19, was ticketed for interference with a peace officer.

Police are considering citing apartment managers for "nuisance gathering."

Rams Coach Steve Fairchild said he was waiting until more facts came out about the incident before he would make a comment about the arrests.
