Pitt Wing Ithiel Horton’s Charges Dismissed

Published

on

On Thursday, Ithiel Horton’s four charges – Aggravated Assault, Resisting Arrest, Disorderly Conduct, and Public Drunkenness – were all dismissed, according to court records obtained by Pittsburgh Sports Now.

Horton was arrested in early November after an alleged physical encounter with a police officer on the South Side.

After hearing of the incident, Pitt suspended Horton indefinitely. While he is still suspended, this new development now gives Horton hope to return to the team this season.

In a similar situation last year, Pitt’s John Hugley had all of his felony charges dropped on May 13. Later that day, Hugley was reinstated to the team.

Last season for the Panthers, Horton averaged 8.9 points per game and hit 43 three-pointers in 22 appearances. For a team lacking shooting and scoring help, Horton would be a huge addition to the Panthers.

It was just one bootlicker who posts under several fake names. He’s mentally ill.

…and right on cue Sturg comes through with his Rectum Rob character. But your Dennis Wagner character wants to be Hugleys advisor.

I don’t think anyone would say that punching a cop or stealing a car are things people who represent the university should be aspiring to do. I hope both of them have learned a valuable lesson and are able to grow as people- regardless of what they do or don’t do on the basketball court. I am rooting for them both, but to act like this was nothing should be embarrassing to you. H2P!

Hughley and Horton incidents are different. Hughley took a car from a party. He didn’t steal it. He sat out a year which I think was a penalty far to extreme for the crime. It was a mistake from an 18 year old kid. I am happy he decided to stay at pitt and I root for him harder now that he has had some adversity and got through it. Horton assaulted a cop which is much more harsh. The charges were dropped so it’s time to move on, but I’ll have a hard time rooting for him moving forward.… Read more »

The kid made a bad mistake an plus he stayed focused . He did his class work online an made the Dean’s list. That’s enough to support this young man is wants his education. Give him some credit.
