Macon arrested for disorderly conduct

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia basketball forward Elijah Macon was arrested and charged with disorderly conduct in Monongalia County.

The Dominion Post reported Macon was attending a hearing in magistrate court for his sister, Mekiiah, who had been arrested for malicious wounding. Macon reportedly became upset, went into the hallway and hit something loud enough to disrupt court.

Officers told Macon, a freshman, to calm down but he exited the building and continued yelling. After he crossed the street and continued yelling, officers arrested him for disorderly conduct.

Macon posted $265 bond.

“We ’re aware of the situation, and the matter will be handled internally,” WVUcoach Bob Huggins said in a statement emailed to the newspaper.

Macon, dealing with a wrist injury and academic issues, is expected to sit out this season as a partial qualifier.
