UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. -- For the second time in seven months, Penn State fullback Michael Zordich is in trouble with the law.
He was cited for underage drinking at 1:24 a.m. Sunday at McKean and Bigler roads, according to court documents.
Charges have been filed with the office of Magisterial District Judge Carmine W. Prestia Jr.
Zordich, a 6-foot-1, 225-pound redshirt sophomore, scored two touchdowns as the No. 2 fullback Saturday in the Coaches' Clinic scrimmage at Beaver Stadium.
In early September, he was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and underage drinking following an incident at 3:25 a.m. in which he was stopped on Bigler Road after university police saw him driving without his headlights on.
Zordich's blood-alcohol content in the first case was 0.19, more than twice the state's legal limit of .08 and nearly 10 times the limit for a minor (.02). He was admitted to the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program in early January.
Zordich's father, Mike, was an All-American strong safety at Penn State who also played 12 seasons in the NFL. He is a defensive quality control coach for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Penn State sophomore kicker Anthony Fera was cited for purchase/possession of alcohol by a minor last week after police found him drinking from a bottle of Cruzan Mango Rum near his residence at Nittany Apartments. He was one of the leading candidates this spring to replace record-setting punter Jeremy Boone.
