IU’s Yogi Ferrell Arrested For Underage Drinking
Yogi Ferrell, who was selected as second team all Big-Ten was arrested alongside teammate Stanford Robinson early this morning for underage drinking.
Indiana State Excise Police officers arrested two members of the Indiana University Men’s Basketball team early this morning. Kevin D. Ferrell, 20, of Indianapolis, and Stanford B. Robinson, 18, of Landover, Maryland, were each preliminarily charged with Minor Consumption of an Alcoholic Beverage and Possession of a False Identification.
At approximately 1:00 am, Ferrell and Robinson allegedly attempted to enter Kilroy’s Sports Bar located at 319 North Walnut using false identifications. Indiana State Excise Police officers working inside the premise recognized the identifications to be false at that time.
Ferrell and Robinson were each issued summonses and released. The two will be required to appear in Monroe County Court on Sunday, April 27th at 8:30 am.
As the enforcement division of the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission, the primary mission of the Indiana State Excise Police is to promote public safety by enforcing Indiana’s Alcoholic Beverage Code. While excise officers have the authority to enforce any state law, they focus primarily on alcohol, tobacco and related laws.
Ferrell led Indiana in scoring with 17.3 points a game and in assists with 125 on the season. Robinson averaged 6.4 points a game in 17 minutes during his freshmen season.
The ironic thing here is that Yogi turns 21 May 9th. He almost made it.
