Spring games may be winding down, but offseason shenanigans show no signs of slowing down.
According to records at the Western Regional Jail website of West Virginia, four Marshall players were arrested over the weekend for what appears to be a scuffle with police. The players involved are senior running back Martin Ward, sophomore defensive back Philip Warren, freshman cornerback Corie Wilson and freshman linebacker Stefone Grace.
The site only said that the four were held on misdemeanor charges, but the Associated Press reports that Ward was charged with disorderly conduct; Warren with battery on police, disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer; Wilson with obstructing an officer and fleeing on foot; and Grace with disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer.
Marshall has not commented on the matter other than a statement released by coach Doc Holliday, which reads “We are aware of the situation and are currently gathering all of the facts pertaining to this issue. Once that process is complete, we will handle the matter appropriately.”
Ward had just five carries for 21 yards last season and Warren had 26 total tackles.
