Well I guess the one thing that comes out of this is that they didn’t rob anyone. CBSSports.com is reporting that five Middle Tennessee State football players, two of whom just finished their eligibility, were arrested after a brawl inside a local club.
All-Sun Belt Conference wide receiver Anthony Amos was among those arrested. According to Murfreesboro police, the fight began inside the club early Sunday morning but eventually made its way outside.
At that point, more than 300 people were reportedly involved. A club employee described the scene as “an all-out riot” and said “we have all hell breaking loose right now,” although there were no reported injuries.
The 22-year-old Amos may have the most to lose right now, considering he is an NFL hopeful. He was charged with disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.
As a senior, Amos led the Blue Raiders with 72 receptions for 992 yards and nine touchdowns. Amos is most known for a leaping, one-handed grab against Georgia Tech that made national highlights.
sophomore wide receiver Marcus Henry, 20, was charged with disorderly conduct, evading arrest and resisting arrest.
Cornerback Jared Singletary, a 19-year-old redshirt freshman, was also charged with disorderly conduct. Offensive lineman Adam Stickel, an 18-year-old redshirt freshman, was charged with disorderly conduct as well as underage consumption, resisting arrest and public intoxication.
All five players are now free on bond. Henry, Singletary and Stickel haven’t been officially suspended. Head coach Rick Stockstill released a statement.
“I’m disappointed” in the arrests and stressed that the incident was not a reflection of the program. “We will react accordingly after gathering all the information,” he said. “We always try to represent our university to the highest standards, and matters like this are taken very seriously.”
