A third Penn State football player was charged in connection with a campus fight.

Suspended defensive tackle Phil Taylor was charged Monday with felony aggravated assault and misdemeanor charges of simple assault and disorderly conduct.

University police said Taylor and former Penn State players Chris Baker and Navorro Bowman beat up a man during a dance in October. The two former players already have been charged.

Taylor also faces one count of summary harassment and stalking. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for March 12.

Baker and Bowman are awaiting trial.

Taylor's defense attorney, Ron McGlaughlin, questioned Tuesday how his client was identified and said he would look into whether Taylor had been defending himself.
