University of Arizona police arrested four UA football players related to underage drinking after being stopped in a pickup early Friday morning.
Arrested on suspicion of being under age with liquor in their systems were Tyler Lyon, 20; Cole C. Graybill, 20; and Kyle Tanner Monson, 18, Sgt. Eugene V. Mejia, UA police spokesman, said Monday.
Craig Stephen Sedoris Jr., 19, the pickup’s driver, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and operating a motor vehicle with liquor in his system while under the age of 21, the legal drinking age in Arizona.
“They will be suspended indefinitely,” UA coach Mike Stoops said on Monday. “We had four kids make very selfish and immature decisions and they will pay the consequences. I will allow them to practice and they won’t partake in games or dress in situations up until this point.”
Two women also were arrested on suspicion of being under age with liquor in their systems: Shay L. Rogers, 18; and Courtney Rose Kennedy, 18.
Lyon, a redshirt freshman, is the third-string quarterback. Monson, a defensive back, and Graybill, a linebacker, are both reserves. Sedoris is a sophomore reserve quarterback.
All six were cited and released Friday. None were booked into the Pima County Jail.
The arrests came after police were called at 12:34 a.m. Friday about a “fight brewing” at the Sigma Pi fraternity house at 1525 E. Drachman St., Mejia said.
When officers got there they were told a group of people had been threatening a fight but were convinced to leave the frat house before any blows were struck, Mejia said.
He said officers were told the unruly group had left in a pickup truck, Mejia said, adding officers spotted a truck in the area matching the description and pulled over the driver.
