MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot State University officials say a football player accused of beating up two police officers has been kicked off the team.
Jesse Ili made his first court appearance Tuesday on six charges, including attempted murder and simple assault on an officer. A preliminary hearing is Oct. 11.
Ili allegedly knocked one officer unconscious and left another with minor injuries Friday after police responded to a report of suspected drug use in a parked vehicle.
Four other team members were arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession and ingesting a controlled substance.
School spokesman Michael Linnell says Ili is no longer on the team. The other players are suspended indefinitely.
Defense attorney Jesse Lange says he cannot comment on the case at this time.
Prosecutor Rozanna Larson did not return phone messages.
