Three Miami Ohio football players are facing charges for a brawl at a fraternity house earlier this month.
Police say the three football players were part of a group involved in a fight at the Theta Chi fraternity house near campus on Oct. 3 that left several people hospitalized. One person was reportedly hit in the eye with a golf club, suffering a broken orbital.
Here’s how the charges break down, per TMZ:
Police say Bomba was ultimately charged with assault and criminal trespass; Mistopoulos was hit with 2 counts of assault, 2 counts of criminal trespass and 1 count of disorderly conduct; while Rush was charged with trespass.
The University said in a statement to WLWT5 that all 3 players have been suspended from the team indefinitely:
Miami Ohio is scheduled to play Ball State on Nov. 4.
