Mbakwe Questioned After Incident In Dinkytown

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — University of Minnesota basketball player Trevor Mbakwe was questioned after a property damage incident early Sunday morning, according to Minneapolis Police.

The incident happened around 2 a.m. on 14th Avenue SE and 5th Street near the University of Minnesota campus.

A police spokesperson said the property damage was related to a vehicle.

He also said Mbakwe was not arrested and it doesn’t look like any charges would be filed, but that is ultimately up to the city attorney’s office.

On Jan. 11, Mbakwe was arrested after he sent an ex-girlfriend a message on Facebook, violating a harassment restraining order the woman obtained against Mbakwe.

Mbakwe pleaded not guilty and his next court appearance is scheduled for April.

Head coach Tubby Smith and athletic director Joel Maturi decided against suspending Mbakwe for the January incident.

      You are an expert on jerks. Might even be smart enough to figure out what I mean.

    Why be out at 2 am? Dad always said nothing good happens after 10 pm…………

    How does he get his homework, etc. done? Oh yeah, with the “help” of tutors, etc. Although the story doesn’t say it, he more than likely was out partying or leaving a bar. Up to no good at 2:00 am and again, if he is found to have caused the damage, the U of M, ol’ Tubby and Joel Maturi will turn a blind eye to it! And with his court appearance coming up in violating the restraining order, he’ll get a slap on the wrist, or maybe nothing will happen from the standpoint of the U of M! Obviously his ex-girlfriend felt threatened enough and in fear of this punk and the court agreed for her to obtain a restraining order.

    Don’t college player’s have to sign a contract or something that they will not bring unbecoming conduct to the program, or not stain the image of the program so long as their player’s?

    “Victim Du Jour”, sounds like you’re a punk just like Mbakwe. Why are Harassment Retraining Orders “not legal”? If they weren’t legal as you pointed out, then millions of Harassment Restraining Orders would not be issued. What if this were your wife, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, cousin, etc.? Too many times we have witnessed in this state a Harassment Restraining Order being violated by the perp and the individual (usually a woman) is killed and many times, if children are involved, they are killed as well! Get a life, this has nothing to do with political factions or unions. Better yet, move to Wisconsin!

      Due Process of the law is over your head isn’t it?

      And you can’t punish people and strip rights away from people for crimes they haven’t committed.

      • What can you do?

        @Victim Du Jour. You make interesting arguments. Have you taken any action? Have you filed a lawsuit? Have you testified before the legislature? I’m very interested in your theories and would like to follow any proceedings that you’ve taken action in.

      • Victim Du Jour

        Judges, Lawyers and Prosecuters are required by law and by oath to uphold the Constitution of Minnesota and the United States.

        I didn’t realize the Due Process clause free speech and expression clauses are a theory?

        Last time I looked at them it appeared to be a documented fact.

      • Victim Du Jour

        I don’t have to take any action, the State is already 5 billion dollars in debt.

        Too bad reading problems are making it so hard for little kids with aids to get their free aids medicine and public school lunch.

        Seems like someone is stopping me from posting anyway.

        @ victim Good that someone complains of you lunatic ranting

      • Victim Du Jour

        It is probably easiest to petition the government to enhance our current treason laws, make it a criminal offense for judges, lawyers, government officials and the Bar association to ignore the constitution for financial gain, activism, mental health extortion or budget

      • What can you do?

        I’m not sure what not taking any action has to do with the state being in debt, can you explain that to me? I’m not trying to be a smarta__, I’d really like to see your theories put in action. I would think the legislature and courts would be interested in some actual facts put in front of them. There are too many laws in this State, they try to legislate everything! If it is unconstitutional, someone needs to start the ball rolling…

  • Victim Du Jour

    This is among many things making companies like Lockeed Martin and Hutch leave the State.

    Facebook postings are not a big deal at all, sorry if you think I am a Lunatic for thinking that.
