Khalid El-Amin In Trouble Again?

Khalid El_Amin, aka The Lid,
has apparently been driving a Land Rover around
- and it's registered to a
booster who says that El-Amin has given him tickets in the past. Khalid denies
any connection, but the owner of the car, Diary Davis, has a different account.
This is the second car issue this month for UConn, and the second problem for
El-Amin since this summer. With Kevin Freeman's back injury, is it time to bring
up The Curse?
