Oregon State University baseball player charged with assault

The Associated Press

CORVALLIS, Ore. — An Oregon State baseball pitcher has been suspended after being accused of assaulting a clerk trying to close a store.

Corvallis police allege that 21-year-old Clay Jacob Bauer forced his way into the University Market about 1 a.m. Saturday seeking chewing tobacco and cigarettes.

An officer’s affidavit says he was told the store was closing, chased an employee, grabbed him by the neck and shoved him against a display door. As Bauer left the store, the affidavit says, he punched the front doors and shattered the glass.

The Corvallis Gazette-Times reports Bauer was arrested half an hour later.

He pleaded not guilty Monday to burglary, assault and criminal mischief charges. He was released on $25,000 bail.

Coach Pat Casey said Monday Bauer was suspended for violating team rules.
