KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -Four Tennessee basketball players, including starting senior forward Tyler Smith, are facing felony gun and misdemeanor drug charges.
The Knoxville Police Department says the 23-year-old Smith, 22-year-old junior point guard Melvin Goins, 22-year-old junior center Brian Williams and 21-year-old sophomore guard Cameron Tatum were arrested during a Friday morning traffic stop near Tennessee?s campus.
According to a police report, officers smelled marijuana coming from the car and found a handgun with an altered serial number, a bag of marijuana and an open container of alcohol. Tatum was driving.
Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl said in a statement that the team takes such matters seriously. Pearl says officials are still gathering information from authorities.
