Texas Tech Releases Bethel Punch Video, Bethel Reinstated


The security video was released in the Nigel Bethel punch from Texas Tech University. Bethel was jostling under the bucket with women's basketball player Amber Battle when this happened June 28th...

Bethel was kicked out of school and Battle is serving a suspension that includes time missed from her team.
A grand jury on chose to not pursue a felony charge against Bethel.

As a result, Bethel is now only suspended three games:

"This is an unfortunate situation with a unique set of circumstances and there are no winners," Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt said in a statement released to the media. "Every decision related to this case has been the right one at that particular time based upon our principles, student-athlete code of conduct and team rules.

"As I continued to work with Coach (Kliff) Kingsbury and Coach (Candi) Whitaker, we looked at the totality of the situation and have arrived at this decision. Two talented young people made a mistake, have shown remorse and learned some very valuable life lessons."
