Posted Jul 9, 2010
A wake up call in the middle of the night found four Tennessee football players are currently at the center of an investigation.
– An early morning wake up call that seven to ten Tennessee football players were initially involved in a melee at a local nightspot has new head coach Derek Dooley unhappy.
Around 2:00 am Friday morning, Knoxville Police were called to the Bar Knoxville off the Cumberland Strip at 1820 Cumberland Ave says KPD spokesman Darrell Debusk.
The bars co-owner and wife of the bars owner, Sandy Morton said the altercation broke out when several players and a local patron got into an argument.
One of the players now charged is high profile recruit Da’Rick Rogers from Calhoun, Georgia. Rogers has been charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct says Debusk.
Another player, Darren Myles was charged later this morning after being interviewed along with two other players. D-Tackle Montori Hughes and WR Denarius Moore have also been questioned by police.
Debusk reported that some of the players got into an altercation with one of the other bar patrons and bar security intervened. When the involved players were hurried outside, an off duty police officer patronizing the bar himself, became involved.
He was later found knocked unconscious when police officials arrived at the scene. Officer Robert Capouellez was found lying on the ground with a head wound. It is being reported by witnesses that several football players had beat him up.
Capouellez was transported to UT Medical Center for the treatment of a head wound. He is listed as being in ICU with a skull fracture this morning.
Myles has now been charged for a second time in less than 90 days for an alcohol related offense. He had already been involved in an investigation hours after the conclusion of the Vols spring football game.
He was charged with assault, resisting arrest and evading arrest. Myles was found by police riding the hood of a car around the parking lot at club Sobu. He was punished internally by Derek Dooley afterwards.
Dooley, who is currently out of town was notified of the incident added DeBusk.
