Two members of the Ball State football program have found themselves with a bit of a legal issue following an incident over the weekend.
According to the Muncie Star-Press, linebacker Travis Freeman and cornerback Kenny Lee were arrested early Saturday morning and charged with misdemeanor battery. In a bit of a twist, an alleged victim was also hit with the same charge following the incident at a Muncie bar.
Officers said Lee struck alleged victim Zechariah Paul Smith “and grabbed him by his neck.”
Freeman, meanwhile, was positively identified by a victim who said “another subject started the fight, but Freeman joined the fight and hit him,” according to the report.
The school has yet to comment on the development.
Freeman was named second-team All-MAC following the 2011 season, while Lee sat out after transferring to the Cardinals from the Div. II level. Both players will be seniors in 2012.
