Three Texas A&M Aggies were arrested last week

Howard Matthews, Charles Ross

It has been a whole ten days since the last time we wrote about a Texas A&M player being arrested, so let’s do some catching up. Three Texas A&M players — defensive back Howard Matthews, wide receiver Edward Pope and defensive lineman Gavin Stansbury — were arrested last Thursday according to multiple reports citing police records. All three were suspended by the university from team activities, although Stansbury has since returned.

“We are continuing to gather information,” a Texas A&M statement reads. “Gavin Stansbury was initially suspended from all athletic activities, but has since been reinstated to the team. Howard Matthews and Ed Pope were not suspended and are still members of the football team.”

Matthews was arrested and charged for speeding and failure to provide a driver’s licence after being pulled over for an expired registration. Pope and Stansbury were in the car at the time. Matthews and Pope both face a charge for failure to appear, although Pope’s charge stemmed from an earlier failure to comply on an unrelated incident. Warrants for all three players were discovered once the police officer pulling the car over ran the licenses of the players.

Stansbury is facing a misdemeanor charge for assault after being accused of pouring a can of beer on a person and then struck the person with a closed fist at Rice University.

    As an Aggie, I sincerely apologize for all of the stupidity lately. Starting with the Kenny Hill arrest.

    This is nothing.

    Some LSU former player gut shot a current LSU player last week.

    I don’t know why any kid attends this school. The police department in college station actively preys on these kids.

    It’s time for the message to get out that prospective student athletes need to stay away from A&M.

    I’m willing to bet the chief of police is a UT alum.

    But look on the bright side, according to most commenters on this site, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING bad or illegal ever happens on a college campus outside of State College, PA!
    So, nothing to see here………
