Washington State University police requested Thursday that USC defensive lineman Liam Jimmons be charged with felony second-degree assault stemming from a September tackle on a fan.
According to Elena Gardner of KXLY, cellphone camera video showed a player believed to be Jimmons laying out a Washington State fan who stormed the field following the Cougars' 30-27 upset win over the Trojans on Sept. 29.
Gardner added the fan has been to the hospital twice after suffering a concussion from the hit.

Jimmons is a redshirt freshman from Huntington Beach, California, who has registered three tackles so far this season as a reserve.
According to Gardner, the Whitman County Prosecutor's Office will decide whether Jimmons will be charged.
