A backup quarterback with the Virginia Tech Hokies was severely injured over the weekend.
A copy of a search warrant obtained from the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office gave details about what police say happened sometime before 2:00 a.m. Saturday.
HokieSports.com lists 20-year-old Brian Rody as a 6-foot-6, 236 pound sophomore reserve quarterback for the Virginia Tech Hokies.
The search warrant reads that a Blacksburg officer on bike patrol saw a body on the ground in the parking lot of a pizza joint on Draper Road around 2:00 a.m., the same time most local bars close down.
The person on the ground was Brian Rody. The warrant reads that witnesses saw Rody being hit from the side or behind the head. Rody was taken to Lewis Gale Montgomery Hospital, where a doctor told police that Rody had a brain bleed and had teeth missing.
Around the time police found Rody, they also arrested 21-year-old Luke Allen Allison, also a Virginia Tech student, and charged him with being drunk in public and malicious wounding. Allison is an ROTC student from Tazewell.
A Blacksburg police officer late Thursday afternoon said it's very possible that Rody broke his teeth when his face hit the asphalt.
The Virginia Tech Athletic Department said it had spoken by phone Thursday morning with Brian Rody.
Virginia Tech officials say the sophomore reserve quarterback was still in a Roanoke hospital, but they did not give an update on his medical condition.
