Kent State Flashes

New basketball recruit got OVI in August

By admin Published: October 29, 2008

More not so flattering news coming out of Kent State today as another men's basketball player has recently been in trouble with the law.

It had not been reported that junior Frank Henry-Ala was charged August 16 -- fifteen days before Chris Singletary's resisting arrest charge -- for operating a vehicle under the influence and lane violations, according to Portage County records.

He was pulled over on Interstate 76 for a marked lanes violation at 2:06 a.m. When given a breathalyzer test Henry-Ala registered a .083, according to the State High Way Patrol. The legal limit is .08.

He pleaded not guilty Aug. 21 and is set for another hearing Dec. 9.

Henry-Ala is a new addition to the Kent State team this season. The Pasadena, Calif. native spent last year with new assistant coach Bobby Steinburg at Motlow Community College in Tennessee.

While at Motlow last year he was also the teammate of junior guard Tyree Evans, who is a walk-on guard this season at KSU.
