Good thinkin’ Mike!
Brown, who has started four games at cornerback for the Cavaliers, has been charged with one count each of grand larceny, possession of stolen property with intent to sell, alteration of serial numbers and possession of marijuana, U.Va. police announced Monday.
The charges stem from a Feb. 6 incident in which a victim reported that four items valued at more than $3,400 had been stolen from his vehicle at the Central Grounds Parking Garage at U.Va.
Brown, 21, is from Newark, N.J. In April 2006, he pleaded guilty in Charlottesville General District Court to one count of misdemeanor trespassing in connection with a brawl at a U.Va. fraternity on Rugby Road. He was ordered to complete 50 hours of community service. Brown originally was charged with a felony in that matter.
As a true freshman in 2005, Brown played in 12 games for U.Va. and started three of them. He played in all 12 in 2006, too, with one start. Brown missed the 2007 season while recovering from a knee injury he suffered last June
