Court papers indicate Penn State senior offensive lineman is facing criminal charges.

Last week, Penn State receiver James McDonald was kicked off the team after being hit with DUI charges. Now comes word that another Nittany Lion is facing similar accusations.

According to court documents, Ako Poti, whose actual first name is "Isaako," was recently charged with DUI. The Criminal Docket report filed in Centre Country says Poti faces charges of DUI, DUI with a high rate of alcohol (blood alcohol content of .10 to .16) and disregarding a traffic lane.

It is not clear when the alleged incident occurred. But Poti was pulled over by State College police in the borough. Charges were filed July 17. A summons was served July 20.

A preliminary hearing is set for Sept. 2.

Penn State athletic spokesmen were not available for comment on this matter. They were presumably traveling after attending Big Ten Media Days in Chicago Monday and Tuesday.
