Two projected starters on the Texas A&M football team have been accused of assault from an incident that occurred in April, The Eagle (College Station, Texas) reports.
According to College Station police, 21-year-old Deshazor Everett and 20-year-old Floyd Raven were charged after the April 7 fight. Both surrendered at the Brazos County Jail on Monday.
The Associated Press reported that both players were suspended Monday from team activities after being charged with two charges of misdemeanor assault and criminal mischief.
The school said Everett and Raven will remain suspended pending further investigation, though they can continue their studies.
The charges are the result of an April 30 incident in which they allegedly hit two men at a College Station apartment complex and allegedly "pounded and kicked" a truck at the scene of the crime.
Via The Eagle:
Court documents state that the two football players were among a group of 10 to 12 men who "attacked" two people as they climbed out of a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe at an apartment complex off Harvey Mitchell Parkway early April 7.
The fight apparently started at Hookah Station, a bar at Northgate, according to the documents that detail how the altercation started when the two football players sprayed champagne into the crowd. Pushing and shoving ensued but before a fight started it was broken up by College Station police and bouncers at the club, according to the arrest report.
Everett was a key factor at cornerback throughout the 2012 season, notably intercepting an AJ McCarron goal-line pass on fourth down with less than two minutes left to seal the Aggies' stunning upset win over Alabama.
Raven, a senior safety from Kenner, La., had 16 tackles in 13 games last season.
It should be noted that A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was arrested, however he did not miss any time. Manziel almost transferred before his 2012 Heisman season.
