BC assistant allegedly shoves FSU band member

Boston College assistant Bonzie Colson shoved a Florida State pep band member and cursed at him before Sunday's loss at FSU, according to a report taken by an off-duty trooper working the game. The Florida State University Police Department is investigating the alleged incident.

It was first reported by Tallahassee.com.

"I ... was exiting the basketball court and found myself stuck between the media table and the basketball team," the student stated in writing, according to Tallahassee.com. "A coach was in my way ... I looked at him and said, ‘excuse me.’ He took his hands, one on each of my shoulders, and shoved me by him."

The student said Colson then told him, "Get the (expletive) off my court." Two other students submitted statements supporting the band member’s story, according to Tallahassee.com.

BC officials are aware of the report, which was forwarded to the FSUPD.

Maj. Jim Russell told Tallahassee.com the incident is being investigated as a possible battery.
