Big East lunchtime links: More on Gunn's arrest

Posted by ESPN.com's Brian Bennett

More details have emerged on the surprising arrest and subsequent suspension of Pitt middle linebacker Adam Gunn. Austin Ransom, who started last year at outside linebacker as a senior, was also involved in the incident at a local night club.

The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review's Kevin Gorman has more from the police affidavit:

"Gunn and a group of other men were attempting to cut the line at Club Zen late Saturday night. Police officers escorted the group away from the line and threatened to arrest them if they came back.

Gunn then circled around and got in front of one of the officers. When the officer tried to arrest him, Gunn "pulled away and spun around swinging" before he took off running through the Station Square parking lot. Police caught him when he tripped on a chain in the parking lot.

As one officer was trying to handcuff Gunn, Ransom ran up and swung at the officer. Ransom then fought with two other officers before they arrested him. While that was occurring, one of the other men in the group -- Anthony Coleman -- challenged one of the officers to a fight. He also resisted arrest and broke one of the officer's badges off of his shirt. Coleman was Tasered and arrested."

• The Cincinnati Enquirer's Paul Daugherty says there must be two Brian Kellys, because the Bearcats coach seems to be everywhere in the community promoting his program.

Kelly did more than 60 appearances locally last year. He estimates that number will rise to between 75 and 80 by the end of this year. Along the way, he has become more than the head coach of a newly successful football team, but also among UC's foremost ambassadors and an affable A-Lister at every local function.

"One of my strengths is my ability to communicate and motivate,'' he says. "I enjoy it, I think I do a good job at it. I have two families, my football family and my real one. The sacrifices I make by being away from my real family, I make back monetarily.''
