LOS ANGELES – Former Carolina Panthers cornerback Ricky Manning Jr. and two former UCLA football players were charged today with assault after they allegedly attacked a man in a Denny’s restaurant in Westwood on April 23, the District Attorney’s office announced.

Manning, 25 (dob 11-18-80), is scheduled to be arraigned after 1:30 p.m. at the Airport Court, Dept. 144, said Deputy District Attorney Karen Murcia. He is charged in case No. SA060294 with one count of assault by means likely to produce great bodily injury. He was released earlier on $30,000 bail.

Charged in the same case are Tyler Ebell, (dob 6-4-83), and Maurice Christopher Drew, (dob 3-23-85). Ebell and Drew are expected to surrender and be arraigned at a later date, Murcia said. Bail will be $30,000 each.

The three former UCLA football players allegedly exchanged words with a customer in a Denny’s in the 1000 block of Tiverton Avenue in the early morning hours on April 23. They allegedly attacked the man and then left the restaurant. Manning was arrested by LAPD officers a short time later.

Manning, who recently signed with the Chicago Bears, is on probation for a similar assault in April 2002. If convicted, he faces up to four years in state prison.
