It would appear that the Zayd Issah story, at least as far as Penn State is concerned, has come to an end. Early Saturday morning, Issah was arrested in State College and charged with aggravated ssault, resisting arrest, and possession of marijuana. He was arraigned earlier today and is being held in Centre County Jail after failing to post $20,000 bail. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for this coming Wednesday.
After being arrested in March for passing counterfeit money at a Harrisburg McDonald’s, Bill O’Brien pulled his scholarship, but left the door open for a return after a year in prep school. It was announced last month that Issah would attend Fork Union Military Academy in Virginia, and plan to enroll at PSU for the 2014 season. It was also expected he would enter into a program that would ultimately remove the counterfeiting charges from his record.
While O’Brien or Penn State have yet to make any formal statement, it seems highly unlikely that Issah will ever enroll at Penn State or suit up for the Nittany Lions.
