Decision on Christian LeMay expected in next two weeks

Butler quarterback Christian LeMay will know in the next two weeks the outcome of a disciplinary hearing with CMS officials today for breaking the CMS “code of conduct.” The Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that LeMay’s father said via text message:

…the elder LeMay said “the hearing went well” and said his son is “taking the high road and handling adversity as classy as he has always been known to.” He said his son had to “duck cameras” to attend the hearing.

LeMay’s family released a statement Monday thanking the community for support, and promising LeMay will get back on track:

We would first like to thank so many of you who have shown your love, support and rendered prayers for our family at this time. The overwhelming outpouring of community affection has been tremendous. Christian is the oldest of our four children and as parents we could not have asked nor designed a more special young man then himself. He has for 17 years lead by example and done remarkably well with the responsibility. We truly believe that children are a joy and one of the most precious gifts we could ever receive from God.
