Swimmer denies theft allegations

The Arizona Daily Wildcat published a story Thursday, “”UA swim accused of Red Bull theft,”” in which it was reported that Darren Maxwell and Cory Chitwood, among others unidentified, allegedly stole approximately $288 of Red Bull from the Auld Dubliner on University Boulevard on March 31, according to Kevin Gilliam, manager of the bar.


Maxwell and Chitwood were unofficially identified on surveillance tape by bar employees and the Daily Wildcat.


The Daily Wildcat attempted to reach Chitwood, a current UA swimmer, and Maxwell, a former UA swimmer, by telephone earlier this week, but was unsuccessful. Chitwood said he was never contacted.


Chitwood, however, spoke to the Daily Wildcat on his own will Thursday and said he was at the bar during the incident, but denied participating in the theft.


“”You had it right with Darren, but I’m pretty sure he was the only one involved,”” Chitwood said. “”I don’t know the specifics of it. All I know is that I was definitely not the one who took the Red Bull.””


The Auld Dubliner has not pressed charges against anybody.
