 MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) -Three former Coastal Carolina football players kicked off the team a week ago after they were arrested on drugs and weapons charges face new charges for first-degree burglary and armed robbery.
Mario Tynes, Eric Brown Jr. and Rickey Johnson were involved in an assault and armed robbery at an apartment complex near Myrtle Beach, according to the Horry County Police Department. Also arrested and charged were Joshua Readon and Michael Lackey.
Tynes, Brown and Johnson were arrested just hours after a football game on Oct. 14, after police stopped the car they were in and found two guns, three pounds of marijuana and $1,345 in cash, authorities said.
Officers pulled over the car after someone called 911 and said several men were in a vehicle waving guns out the window, police said.
About 90 minutes after that arrest, a man reported an assault that occurred nearby, police said.
Investigators said the incidents happened so close together and around the same time, so they checked for a connection.
One of the weapons taken from the vehicle the five were in had blood on it and an analysis by the State Law Enforcement Division matched the blood to the man who reported the assault.
Last week, Tynes, Brown and Johnson, all 19, were each charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol and manufacturing and possession of drugs.
The players were immediately removed from the football program and their scholarships have been revoked, Coastal Carolina Athletics Director Warren Koegel and coach David Bennett said last week.
Tynes and Brown are freshmen cornerbacks, while Johnson is a freshman wide receiver. All three have played in at least one game this season.
