Champaign, Ill. — Illinois quarterback Nathan Scheelhaase’s father has been banned from campus for a year after his arrest over an altercation at Saturday’s football game.
University police Chief Jeff Christensen said Tuesday that Nathan Creer was arrested after an argument at Memorial Stadium during Saturday’s game. Christensen said Creer became “somewhat aggressive” with officers.
Christensen didn’t know what the argument was about.
Creer pleaded not guilty Monday to resisting and obstructing an officer.
Christensen said campus bans are “standard practice” when someone who isn’t a student or university employee is suspected of creating trouble at the school.
Creer’s public defender did not immediately return a call.
Scheelhaase was not immediately available for comment.
