CONWAY, S.C. (AP) -Three Coastal Carolina football players were dismissed from the team Monday, one day after they were arrested on drugs and weapons charges.
Mario Tynes, Eric Brown Jr. and Ricky Johnson were arrested Sunday 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.
Tynes, Brown and Johnson, all 19, were charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol and manufacturing and possession of drugs. They were released from a Horry County detention center Monday after each posted $10,000 bail.
The players were immediately removed from the football program and their scholarships were revoked, Coastal Carolina athletics director Warren Koegel and coach David Bennett announced Monday on the school's Web site.
A detention center official said he didn't know if the three had an attorney. A call to a Horry County police spokesman wasn't immediately returned Monday. A message left for an athletic department spokesman also wasn't immediately returned.
Tynes and Brown are cornerbacks, and Johnson is a wide receiver. The three freshmen have all played in at least one game this season.
