Four Marshall football players have been arrested and are being held in the Western Regional Jail.
The jail said those arrested were running back Martin Ward, defensive back Phillip Warren, cornerback Corie Wilson and linebacker Stefone Grace.
Ward is charged with disorderly conduct. Warren is charged with battery on police, disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer. Wilson is charged with obstructing an officer and fleeing on foot, while Grace is charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer.
The jail said the players were being held Sunday pending arraignment and didn’t indicate whether the players had attorneys.
Marshall coach Doc Holliday issued a statement saying the program is aware of the situation and still gathering facts. Holliday said once that process is complete, he will handle the matter appropriately.
Ward played in 11 games and carried the ball four times for 20 yards and returned three kickoffs for a 15.0 average.
Warren played in 12 games and started one last season. He accumulated 26 tackles and forced a fumble.
