Five current or former Middle Tennessee State University football players were arrested and charged early Sunday morning following an altercation at a local nightclub.
According to WKRN-TN Nashville, the athletes arrested included wide receiver Marcus Henry, cornerback Jared Singletary offensive lineman Adam Stickel, wide receiver Anthony Amos, and defensive lineman Jerrold Frazier.
As for the specific charges for the current Blue Raider athletes, Henry, 20, was charged with disorderly conduct and both evading and resisting arrest; Stickel, 18, was hit with underage consumption, disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and public intoxication; and Singletary, 19, received a disorderly conduct charge.
Frazier, a 19-year-old redshirt freshman who was recently released from the team for reasons unrelated to the nightclub fight, was charged with assaulting an officer, resisting arrest, and disorderly conduct.
Former Blue Raider Amos — the team’s leading receiver from last season and a 2013 NFL Draft prospect — was only charged with disorderly conduct.
While exact details surrounding the fight still are unknown at this time, unconfirmed reports indicated someone threw a beer bottle and the incident escalated from there.
MTSU head coach Rick Stockstill released the following statement after news of the arrests went public:
“I was disappointed to learn the arrests of three current and two former football players. 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.”
