Six Idaho State athletes suspended for misconduct
POCATELLO, Idaho -- Six Idaho State athletes have been suspended for misconduct, athletic director Paul Bubb said Tuesday.
Football players David Beverly, Michael Harris and Jason Wright were suspended for one week, while teammate Jermaine Horn and basketball players Tony Jones and Akbar Abdul-Ahad were placed on indefinite suspension.
The suspensions were prompted by "multiple incidents that took place Saturday evening," Bubb said. Police earlier said there had been a confrontation at a weekend party following Idaho State's 37-0 win over Montana Western.
Horn and Beverly were suspended for allegedly taking part in a fight, Bubb said, and Jones and Abdul-Ahad were suspended for alleged behavior not directly related to a fight. Bubb did not elaborate. He also did not offer any details on the suspensions of Harris and Wright.
Horn, the starting defensive tackle, is currently third on the team in tackles with 13. Beverly is a redshirt and Harris is a redshirt candidate who is recovering from an ACL injury. Wright, a reserve cornerback, has played in two games this season, according to Idaho State.
Jones and Abdul-Ahad are junior college transfers.
