Men’s basketball senior guard Khalif Wyatt is reportedly facing a fine and community service after appearing in court Friday for charges stemming from his June arrest.
According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Wyatt appeared in Atlantic City Municipal Court Friday and was fined $1,000 and ordered to perform community service after being arrested on charges of prositution and resisting arrest more than three months ago.
Wyatt was arrested in Atlantic City, N.J., on June 10, for allegedly soliciting an undercover prostitute who was a police officer and resisting arrest while celebrating his 21st birthday.
“Khalif Wyatt has expressed remorse for his actions and has apologized for the embarrassment that has come to his family, team and university,” men’s basketball coach Fran Dunphy said in a statement. “We have taken appropriate action with Khalif [Wyatt] and believe the matter is now behind us.”
Wyatt expressed remorse in his statement and said, “I want to apologize to my family, teammates, coaches and Temple University for the embarrassment that my actions have caused. I take full responsibility for my actions and have learned from this mistake.”
It’s unclear whether Wyatt has, or will be disciplined by the university or the men’s basketball team for the arrest.
