Brown athlete from Fulton arrested in connection with assault on basketball player

A 22-year-old Brown University student has been charged with disorderly conduct following an incident in which a Brown basketball player was assaulted and suffered severe head injuries.

Providence police say 22-year-old Dillon James Ingham of Fulton, N.Y., was charged Friday and is held until he can be arraigned. A police spokeswoman wouldn't provide details on his alleged involvement.

Ingham is listed as a member of the wrestling team on the university's website.

A Connecticut Marine was arraigned in Providence Friday on a felony assault charge in connection with an attack early Sunday on 21-year-old Joseph Sharkey of Norwood, Mass.

A lawyer for Tory Lussier of Vernon, Conn., said he acted in self-defense. Lussier was released on bail.

Police say Sharkey was attacked after an altercation but haven't provided details.
