Incoming freshman receiver Da'Rick Rogers was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, Knoxville police said. Rising sophomore defensive back Darren Myles Jr. was charged with assault, resisting arrest and evading arrest, University of Tennessee police said.
Tennessee coach Derek Dooley dismissed Myles from the team Friday evening and indefinitely suspended sophomore linebacker Greg King and sophomore defensive tackle Marlon Walls, though it was not clear what their alleged roles were in the matter.
A campus police report said Myles tried to hide under a car and in some bushes as an officer tried to arrest him, then elbowed the officer in the face. It was the second offseason arrest for Myles, 19. He also was charged with public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest on April 18 after a disturbance at a Knoxville restaurant and nightclub.
"It is a privilege, not a right, to be a member of the University of Tennessee football team,'' Dooley said in a statement.
"The most important responsibility of that privilege is to properly represent this institution and our supporters on and off the field,'' the statement added. "I am disappointed and in many ways embarrassed by the poor judgment displayed on many fronts by several members of our football team last night.''
2 players, 1 frosh, 1 soph, are arrested for "allegedly" committing bar brawl crimes, leaving a policeman unconscious. Lane and Ogre recruited the character jock, previously arrested, who elbowed the cop in the face (pretty hard). 3 others were questioned but aren't charged at this time.
Let's see, maybe he and Layla should have named their son "Crime".
