UNH Men’s Basketball Staffer Accused Of Recording Players In Locker Room

DURHAM (CBS) — An operations director for the University of New Hampshire men’s basketball team has been fired amid allegations he recorded his players in the locker room.

Police said Wednesday, they had charged Scott A. Weitzell, 50, of Newmarket, N.H., with attempting to falsify evidence and resisting arrest.

School officials say the allegations stem from a game at the University of Vermont in January. Teammates allegedly came forward to authorities, a month later.

When police went to execute a search warrant at Weitzell’s home, investigators say he tried to hide his cell phone and refused to cooperate. Police say additional charges such as invasion of privacy could be forthcoming.

On Tuesday, UNH said they had fired a part-time member of its athletic department after allegations of misconduct involving athletes.

Weitzell has been banned from the campus. A call to Weitzell was not immediately returned.
