Marshall’s starting RG arrested on multiple charges, including battery of police officer

This certainly isn’t a good look for the Marshall football program.

Nate Devers was one of four males, including an MU soccer player, who were arrested early Sunday morning because of an incident at an Italian restaurant in Huntington.  The 6-3, 290-pound junior offensive lineman has been officially charged with two counts of battery on a police officer, one count of disorderly conduct, one count of public intoxication or drinking in public places and one count of obstructing an officer.

From WV MetroNews as to what led to Devers’ myriad charges:

According to the criminal complaint, Devers and three other men were causing a problem at the restaurant and they were asked to leave and refused to. Devers allegedly hit an officer in the face with a closed fist and another officer in the back of the head. Police said Devers had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.

As a result of the incident, Devers has been indefinitely suspended from the football program.

Devers has started every game at right guard for the Thundering Herd this season.  Or had, as the case may be.
