Not long after four Alabama Crimson Tide players were arrested on felony theft charges and credit/debit card fraud, five current and former Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders players were arrested after a brawl at a nightclub over the weekend.
According to the Murfreesboro Daily News Journal, the players arrested were wide receivers Anthony Amos (pictured) and Marcus Henry, cornerback Jared Singletary, defensive lineman Jerrold Frazier and offensive lineman Adam Stickel.
Henry, Singletary and Stickel are current members of the football team, while Amos — the team’s leading receiver from last season — is a 2013 NFL Draft prospect and Frazier was recently dismissed from the program.
Henry was charged with disorderly conduct and both evading and resisting arrest, Stickel was hit with underage consumption, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest and public intoxication and Singletary received a disorderly conduct charge.
“I was disappointed to learn the arrests of three current and two former football players,” Blue Raiders head coach Rick Stockstill said in a statement. “This is not the reflection of our football program we want at Middle Tennessee and we will react accordingly after gathering all the information. We always try to represent our university to the highest standards and matters like this are taken very seriously.”
It will be interesting to see how Middle Tennessee hands out punishment to those involved.
