    4 Conn. Students, Including Athletes, Arrested at House Party

    Four Central Connecticut State University (CCSU) students, including two student football players, were arrested at a house party over the weekend. 

    The call about a large party in New Britain came into police exactly at midnight on Saturday, CCSU Police Sergeant Jerry Erwin said.

    University police saw at least 100 people at the Stanley Street residence when they arrived and felt things could escalate with such a large group of people. Officers ended up arresting four CCSU students, Erwin said. 

    The students were charged with breach of peace and all were released on a promise to appear in court in December. 

    Two of the students arrested were football players Jacob Dolegala and David Cinit. 

    On Monday, Coach Pete Rossomando has suspended junior quarterback Jacob Dolegala and junior offensive lineman David Cinti for one game because of a "violation of team policy," according to a statement from a university spokesperson.

    The Central Connecticut Blue Devils will be without their starting quarterback for the school's first ever Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) playoff game on Saturday.

    Dolegala just became the school's all-time leading passer in the 42-14 win over Robert Morris.
