Shane Lehmann, the junior offensive guard, has been suspended for the Colorado State game due to an incident that occurred last spring, Head Coach Bob Toledo announced today.

Lehmann pleaded "no contest" to a misdemeanor battery charge on Tuesday. The incident took place in Westwood last May, at an establishment where Lehmann worked as a security worker. According to UCLA, he wasn't working the night of the incident. "He told us that he helped break up an altercation between the manager and the complainant. According to Shane, as Shane and a co-worker were escorting the complainant from the estblishment, Shane found it necessary to defend his co-worker from attack." Toledo said that Lehmann came to him and told him of the incident shortly after it.

Team policy dictates that a misdemeanor conviction results in a suspension. Lehmann was questionable for the game because of a groin strain, but Toledo said today that team doctors cleared him to play recently.
