Charlotte’s Withers faces DWI charges

Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) – University of Charlotte basketball star
Curtis Withers will have his situation reviewed by the school after getting
charged with driving under the influence this past weekend.

Withers was detained by university police on Sunday night and found to be
under the influence of alcohol. The university will decide what action to take
prior to Wednesday’s game at Houston.

The 49ers are in the midst of a successful season (18-7, 10-4 Conference USA),
and are considered by most to be in good position to obtain a spot in the
upcoming NCAA Tournament.

Withers, a sophomore forward, is the team leader in both points (16.5) and
rebounds (9.5).
