Huggins’ Case Close to Being Fully Resolved Without Charges”

Bob Huggins was arrested for DUI last month in Pittsburgh. Now, his charges could be dropped, according to his attorney.  

MORGANTOWN, West Virginia — Despite Bob Huggins blowing almost three times the legal limit on his breathalyzer test in Pittsburgh last month, it’s likely that the case will be dropped with no charges, according to his attorney, David A. Campbell of Cleveland, Ohio.

Campbell said the following in his electronic mail correspondence to West Virginia University President E. Gordon Gee: “Huggins was involved in an incident that is now close to being fully resolved without charges.”

Campbell used the word “incident” rather than “arrest” throughout the letter, essentially downplaying the seriousness of it. Huggins’ attorney went to say, “Moreover, Coach Huggins has voluntarily sought rehabilitation following the incident in order to leave no doubt that he is fully capable of returning to his duties as WVU Head Basketball Coach. This rehabilitation was not ordered by the Court or any other entity. Rather, to demonstrate his commitment to the WVU basketball program, he took the step of entering the program on a voluntary nature.”

In addition to claiming that he will not face any charges for his DUI arrest, Campbell went on say that Huggins will be ready to immediately step back in to his old job once he’s released from rehab: “Coach Huggins will be released from the program soon and we will provide you with a full release for Coach Huggins to return to his active duties as Head Basketball Coach at WVU.”
