Updated: Two Ole Miss linebackers arrested over the weekend


Two Ole Miss linebackers Denzel Nkemdiche and Serderius Bryant were arrested Saturday night in Oxford.

Nkemdiche was charged with disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct and failure to comply with a police officer, and Bryant was cited for being drunk in public and disturbing the peace, according to the ClarionLedger.com.

Nkemdiche was arrested at The Retreat apartment complex, and Nkemdiche and Bryant make the third and fourth Rebels to have offseason incidents, as both Bobby Hill (read about it here) and Channing Ward (read about it here) were also arrested. 

Nkemdiche is a former freshman All-American in 2012, and he was a second-team All-SEC performer in 2013. Bryant led the team with 12.5 tackles for loss in 2013.

Updated: Ole Miss head coach Hugh Freeze released a statement about the arrests and said both players have been suspended.

“We are aware of the incidents and gathering facts. Denzel and Serderius are suspended until we know more.”

  • Mehhh. Drunk in public. How many college students aren’t this frequently. Disorderly conduct is just code for he said something smart & the cop didn’t like it. Nothing to see here. The other 2, however, are quite serious. It is disturbing that these have all happened in less than a month. Hopefully Freeze can nip this trend in bud soon.
