UNCW athlete faces assault charges

Video

Body

A member of the UNC Wilmington track team was sentenced to 100 hours of community service Thursday in Chesapeake, Virginia along with two years of suspended jail time.

Kevin Webb is a freshman pole vaulter at UNC Wilmington. During his senior year in high school in Virginia he apparently bullied a special education classmate.

A Virginia newspaper reports that Kevin Webb even went to his classmate’s house and attacked him and the classmate’s father.

WWAY contacted UNC Wilmington Friday morning. We were told the university had just learned about Kevin Webb’s brush with the law.

Later, they released a statement to us saying, “The university just became aware of this issue, and we’re looking into the matter.”

Due to privacy issues, UNC Wilmington cannot say at this time how the Kevin Webb issue will be addressed, and just to clarify, Kevin Webb is a member of the Seahawk track team, but he is not on scholarship. The track season is scheduled to start January 16th.
