The charges against the players range from malicious mischief to simple assault, and all of them are misdemeanors.
Claiborne County Sheriff Frank Davis said other students filed charges against each of the players, and the sheriff’s office anticipated more arrests would likely be made Thursday.
Alcorn State issued a statement on the incident.
“Maintaining a safe and secure campus community is the institution’s top priority. Campus police investigate all instances of student misconduct thoroughly and appropriate disciplinary actions are implemented in accordance with Alcorn’s student code of conduct.”
Following the fight in the cafeteria, it resumed in the parking lot.
