EL PASO, Texas (AP) -Five underage Texas-El Paso players and a linebacker recently kicked off the team were arrested after police responded to a weekend brawl outside a downtown bar.
Two 20-year-old sophomores - receiver Tufick Shadrawy and linebacker Brian Wilkins - were arrested on charges of assault on a public servant and interference with public duties. Shadrawy also was accused of attempting to take a weapon from a law enforcement officer, and Wilkins was accused of resisting arrest.
Sophomore defensive back Damon Cromartie, 20, was arrested on a charge of disorderly conduct.
Linebacker Isaiah Carter and defensive back Brandon Thigpen, both 17-year-old freshmen, were accused of public intoxication.
Emeri Spence, 22, was arrested on charges of interference with public duties and resisting arrest. He was recently kicked off the team, UTEP officials said.
All six have been released from jail. It wasn't clear from jail records whether they had attorneys. Police officials didn't immediately return a call Tuesday seeking comment.
UTEP coach Mike Price said in a statement Monday he was ``monitoring the situation and will take disciplinary action if necessary.''
