Tennessee police detail number of arrests, ejections during Ole Miss ending
As more details emerge from the mayhem at Neyland Stadium at the end of the Ole Miss-Tennessee game on Saturday, University of Tennessee police have released details about arrests and ejections.
Preliminary records show 18 people were arrested and 47 people were ejected at Tennessee’s 31-26 loss against Ole Miss, a UTPD spokesperson said and WATE reported. University Chancellor Donde Plowman previously said that officials are trying to to identify those responsible and perpetrators would lose the ability to attend future games if found to have thrown debris.
All individuals found to have been involved in disrupting the game will be banned from all Tennessee Athletics events for the remainder of the 2021-2022 academic and athletic year.
The SEC on Monday issued a $250,000 fine to Tennessee, and while the conference is not suspending alcohol sales at Neyland Stadium, it reserves the right to do so if other requirements are not met.
