Samson Kafovalu, a freshman defensive lineman for the University of Colorado football team, was ticketed by Boulder police Friday night after officers say he tried to force his way into a fraternity party and threatened to kill a security guard when he wasn't allowed in.
According to a police report, a security guard at the Kappa Sigma fraternity house, 1100 Pennsylvania Ave., called police to report that Kafovalu, 19, had tried to get into a party the fraternity was hosting.
The security guard said Kafovalu was not on the list for the party and was not allowed in. He continued to try to force his way into the party and began shouting. At one point the guard said Kafovalu yelled out, "Don't (expletive) do this (expletive), I'll (expletive) kill you," according to the report.
While his friends were trying to push him back, Kafovalu bumped into a short brick wall and knocked part of it over, causing $300 in damage according to the fraternity, according to police.
When approached by police on the scene, Kafovalu reportedly told them he was, "Gonna go home." He told officers that "they wouldn't let me into the party, so they were pushing me out."
Officers noticed Kafovalu appeared to be intoxicated, and he registered a .120 on a breathalizer on scene -- more than the legal limit for driving.
Kafovalu was issued a summons on charges of threatening bodily injury, trespassing, consumption of alcohol by a minor and use of fighting words. He was allowed to leave the scene.
A defensive lineman recruited out of California, Kafovalu played in 10 games in his freshman year for CU in 2012, recording 20 tackles and one sack.
CU athletics spokesman David Plati said both the Athletic Department and the Office of Student Conduct are in touch with the Boulder Police Department. Plati said Kafovalu will be disciplined once team officials learn more about the incident.
