Angry that he wasn't allowed access to a fraternity party on Feb. 22, Colorado defensive lineman Samson Kafovalu decided to take drastic measures to work his way into what must have been the greatest party to ever hit one of the great party schools in America:
First he tried to push his way into the party, unsuccessfully. A security guard at the door ‚?? must be one heck of a party to have a velvet rope ‚?? said that Kafovalu was not on the list (again, must have been a great party) and was not allowed to enter.
Then, according to the (Boulder, Colo.) Daily Camera, Kafovalu tried to reason with the security guard. "Don't [expletive] do this [expletive], I'll [expletive] kill you," Kafovalu said, according to the police report. How bad did Kafovalu want to get into this party?
Kafovalu's friends then intervened, pushing the sophomore-to-be back away from the guard‚?¶ and into a brick wall, part of which Kafovalu (250 pounds when he arrived on campus) knocked over. The damage to the wall will cost the fraternity $300, according to the report.
And so the police were called, as you might expect, and Kafovalu was asked to take a breathalyzer test, as you might expect. He blew a .120, which is above the the legal limit.
Kafovalu was issued a summons on charges of threatening bodily injury, trespassing, consumption of alcohol by a minor and use of fighting words, writes Mitchell Byars. He used fighting words.
Where does this leave his standing with the team? After posting a solid freshman season, Kafovalu will be disciplined after team officials gather more information about the incident, a school spokesman told the Daily Camera.
