Northridge Takes No Action, Injury Sidelines Beauregard

October 06, 1994|STEVE ELLING | TIMES STAFF WRITER

The case of Cal State Northridge football player Jonathan Beauregard took another bizarre turn Wednesday when school officials announced that they would take no action against the senior lineman, who stands accused of two counts of attempted murder in San Bernardino.

Beauregard, though, already had managed to sideline himself.

Beauregard suffered a broken ring finger on his right hand at practice Tuesday night and will be sidelined from two to four weeks.

Had he not been injured, however, he would have been allowed to continue playing while his case worked its way through the courts, the school said.

Beauregard was arrested on the first day of the fall semester, Aug. 29, and charged with shooting his ex-girlfriend and her male acquaintance outside a San Bernardino bar.

Beauregard, a criminology major who was senior class president at San Bernardino's Cajon High in 1989-90, did not tell his teammates or coaches of the arrest and started at offensive right guard in each of the Matadors' four games.
