Davenport pleads not guilty to odd break-in charges

Associated Press

MIAMI -- Green Bay Packers rookie Najeh Davenport pleaded not guilty Monday to charges that he broke into a university dormitory and defecated in a woman's closet.

Davenport, a running back who helped Miami win the 2001 national championship, was not in the courtroom. His written plea on a second-degree felony count of burglary and a misdemeanor count of criminal mischief was entered by his attorney, Richard Sharpstein.

Arraignment on the charges was postponed until August 5.

According to police, Davenport crept into a dorm room at Barry University around 6 a.m. on April 1. A woman sleeping in the room, Mary McCarthy, told police she was startled by a strange sound and saw Davenport squatting in her closet. Davenport then allegedly defecated in a laundry basket, McCarthy told detectives.

Davenport signed a multiyear contract with Green Bay and reported to training camp last week.
