Murchison released

King County records show that Husky cornerback Jordan Murchison was released from jail early this morning after having been booked Wednesday evening for failure to appear in connection with an assault case from March.
Here’s our report from today’s paper on the details.
On the issue of what Tyrone Willingham knew and when he knew it, he was asked “is this something you just found out about today?” and he said simply “no” without elaborating.
He basically deferred all other questions on the issue other than telling us that Murchison was not with the team on Thursday and had been charged. A UW spokesman said that the team had not yet seen a police report and Willingham indicated he did not know the full nature of the charges. At the time we met with Willingham, none of us knew about the other charge against Murchison, so we did not ask him about that.
We did confirm further today that the June charge was for misdemeanor domestic violence assault and harassment when an officer was called to an establishment on University Way to break up an alleged incident between Murchison and a woman. A police report alleges Murchison grabbed the back of the woman’s hair and pulled it and yelled threatening comments, among other things.
Willingham is scheduled to meet with the media today for his regular press briefing around noon so we’ll see if there is more on the UW end of things then.
