TUCSON - Four University of Arizona reserve football players have been arrested on suspicion of underage drinking, police said Monday.
Campus police arrested the players and two women in a pickup truck early Friday, then cited and released them, said department spokesman Sgt. Eugene Mejia.
Tyler Lyon, 20, a redshirt freshman and third-string quarterback; Cole Graybill, 20, a linebacker; and Kyle Monson, 18, a defensive back, were arrested on suspicion of being under age with liquor in their systems, Mejia said.
Craig S. Sedoris Jr., 19, the driver of the pickup, was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and suspicion of being a minor operating a motor vehicle with liquor in his system, Mejia said.
Arizona’s legal drinking age is 21.
Sedoris also was accused of possessing a fictitious driver’s license, Mejia said.
Police used a preliminary breath test device on the students to determine the presence of alcohol, he said.
The women were also arrested on suspicion of being under age with liquor in their systems, Mejia said.
Police received a phone call about a fraternity party disruption, but on arriving found that the group had left without a fight starting.
Arizona football coach Mike Stoops said Monday that four players, whom he declined to identify, would be suspended indefinitely for a breach of team behavioral guidelines.
