FARMVILLE, Va. -- Morgan State basketball coach Todd Bozeman was charged with misdemeanor assault after an argument with a restaurant employee following a close loss to Longwood.
Bozeman also is being charged with curse and abuse, Sgt. Pam Wilson said Monday. He will turn himself in this week, she said.
Police were called to Mulligan's restaurant near the Longwood campus Saturday after Bozeman arrived to pick up dinner for the team, according to restaurant manager Carlos Holland.
Holland said Bozeman "just went belligerent, screaming that he didn't want ham sandwiches," and grabbed and shook a female assistant manager.
"We had kids in here eating, nice and quiet with their families," Holland said. "He's the head coach of a university, showing a bad example."
Police Chief Stuart Dunnavant confirmed Holland's account and said Bozeman wasn't taken into custody.
A call to a Morgan State spokesman wasn't immediately returned Monday.
Morgan State blew a 10-point second-half lead and lost to Longwood 75-73 at the buzzer.
