Not Your Usual Teambuilding Activity

Courtesy of Raleigh, North Carolina's ABC-affiliate:
(11/01/07 -- RALEIGH) - Police charged a N.C. State men's tennis player with a sex crime against one of his teammates. The weekend incident came to light Thursday when Raleigh police released a search warrant connected to the case. As a member of the tennis team and a stand out in high school, 19-year-old Dejon Bivens of Charlotte is used to having his picture taken, but the mugshot he took over the weekend wasn't voluntary. Raleigh police charged him with crimes against nature. Details of the incident were released in a search warrant. There was an off-campus party last Friday at the apartment of one of the tennis team members. The player told police he went to bed around 3 a.m. Saturday and was awakened two hours later by Bivens performing oral sex on him. Police arrested and served Bivens with the search warrant that allowed investigators get a saliva sample. He was released on bond that same day. None of the tennis team members or the coach will comment on the incident though they know about the charges against Bivens. N.C. State Athletics officials said they can't comment on the matter because of privacy laws, but as of now, Bivens' status with the team has not changed.

HOLY CRAP, BATMAN!!! This is really one of those stories that is just so incredible, you can't believe it (or really know what to say about it). Is it bad that the first thing that popped into my mind when I read this was those old "Teammates, sponsored by the U.S. Army" commercials that used to air during football games and would profile two teammates who exemplified the word "team?" And let's see... "as of now, Bivens' status with the team has not changed?" Really? Really? Hmm... I'm guessing that people aren't lining up to be doubles partners with him right now. Or roommates on the road. Also, I love as a lawyer that he was actually charged with a "crime against nature." That's one of those southern antiquated laws like Maryland still levying a $10 fine for adultery.

I will say for the kid who reported it, he's got some guts.

Aside from having to deal with this publicly now, he also had to drop his pants and let the police or someone get a saliva sample off his Wilson.
