West Virginia's Macon arrested on disorderly conduct charge

West Virginia freshman Elijah Macon was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com.

The story was first reported by The Dominion Post, documented by WV Metro News.

The Dominion Post reported Macon was attending a hearing in magistrate court for his sister, Mekiiah, who had been arrested for malicious wounding. Macon reportedly became upset, went into the hallway and hit something loud enough to disrupt court.

Officers told Macon, a freshman, to calm down but he exited the building and continued yelling. After he crossed the street and continued yelling, officers arrested him for disorderly conduct.

“We’re aware of the situation, and the matter will be handled internally,” head coach Bob Huggins said in a statement.

We reported on Monday that Macon had not yet been cleared to suit up for the Mountaineers this season, and he could end up as a partial qualifier. The 6-foot-8 Ohio native wouldn’t be able to play in games during the 2014-15 season, but could practice during the second semester.

Macon was ranked No. 65 in the 247Sports Composite for the class of 2013.
