NCAA Probes Party with 2009 Heisman Winner

7/22/2010 1:45 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned the NCAA wants to talk to Alabama's Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram about a lavish party he attended in Washington, DC -- and whether any NCAA rules were broken.

A source with knowledge of the inquiry says Ingram attended the party on May 12th at District nightclub. Ingram was photographed (left) at the celebration for college stars who had just been drafted by NFL teams -- including Florida's Joe Haden (center).

Ingram is a returning junior this year and we're told the NCAA wants to know if agents paid for anything involved with his DC trip -- which could be a violation of NCAA rules.

The University of Alabama says Ingram is on the up and up. The Compliance Department tells us, "Mark asked if he could visit Joe Haden at his home in Baltimore. We checked with the NCAA and they approved this trip as long as Mark provided receipts for his expenses."

It's unclear whether those receipts were submitted, but clearly the NCAA has unanswered questions.

Ingram, by the way, was a total badass last season -- leading the Crimson Tide to the National Championship and winning the Heisman.

This story has Lane Kiffin written all over it...

Don't think for two seconds Nick Saban doesn't run this team with an iron fist. Marcel won't be on the field any time soon.

This is such crap! If TMZ had actually reported what was REALLY said by Bama's compliance team they couldn't have printed the story because it was proven false! Also, the NCAA has NOT ever asked to talk to Mark or Bama about this because Mark followed the guidelines as set forth by the NCAA prior to and after the trip. Why TMZ has to make crap up is amazing to me! If you're going to investigate something, don't do a half ass job reporting it! Either investigate it fully and report all findings or don't do either!

As for the Aubie who was proud they lost the game...how typical is that?

Stay out of sports TMZ....you aren't welcome here. Keep your trash confined to the trash you try to make famous like a Kardashian or a Hilton. You half-ass report things as it is.

Hmmmm, sure seems like a really nice watch this kid has. All these Bama fans in here talking about how great of a kid this grown man is, yet they seem to fail to notice the tough guy act he portrays while walking around. Sure looks like he's trying to look Gangsta to me here.

Let's not forget his pops is in Prison and the apple NEVER falls far from the tree.

Bama never cheats? WTF? Bama has been sanctioned AT LEAST 6 times so far, if not more.
