That suspension came as the result of more information obtained by the Associated Press from the Columbia Police Department that was not immediately made available to MU athletic-department officials. Namely, that the basketball players — Jessra Johnson of Fayette, Mo., and Amanda Hanneman of Blue Springs South — told police they were defending one of Short’s roommates, Natalie Cygan, after Short got into a fight with Cygan.
Short and Cygan both graduated from Park Hill South. According to police, Johnson said she pushed Short and Hanneman admitted “slapping and punching” him. Kurt Hanneman, Amanda Hanneman’s father, told The Star he could not discuss this latest development on the advice of his attorney.
Earlier, however, Hanneman’s mother, Betsy, told the Columbia Tribune that Short pushed Cygan down and put a hand to Cygan’s throat after another roommate complained of the noise being raised when Short, Cygan and the basketball players arrived early Friday morning after being out a bar.
“She (Cygan) said she was screaming bloody murder,” Betsy Hanneman said, “saying, ‘Get off me, get off me,’ and Amanda popped him in the nose. He got off of her.”
OK, so it was a male cheerleader and female basketball players
