CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – North Carolina freshman Mark Paschal was cleared of all charges on Monday.

“All charges got dropped,” UNC coach John Bunting said. “I’m not going to say there wasn’t anything to it. Obviously it’s embarrassing to him and his family and us. He’s learned a very valuable lesson.”

Paschal, 18, the son of former UNC and Minnesota Vikings fullback Doug Paschal, was charged on July 10 with: 1) Assault-simple; 2) Drunk/disruptive; 3) Resisting Arrest.

All the charges were misdemeanors.

According to a report filed at the Chapel Hill Police Department, on July 9, at or near 100 W. Franklin Street, at approximately 2:46 a.m., Officer R.L. Tatum observed Paschal “throw another man to the ground and punch him in the head and face. When taken into custody, Mr. Paschal had a fake identification.”

The report also stated that injuries to the victim were minor.

No bond was mentioned in the report

In high school, Paschal led Charlotte Latin to two consecutive independent school state championships. Playing both running back and linebacker, he rushed for 1,300 yards, scored 22 touchdowns and recorded 100 tackles.

Paschal didn’t miss any of training camp and is currently practicing at UNC as a linebacker.
