Police arrested two University of Southern Mississippi football players Sunday night in Hattiesburg, according to an AP report appearing on the Sports Illustrated Web site.
[R]unning back Damion Fletcher, the school's all-time leading rusher, is charged with firing at least one gunshot while at an apartment complex Brennan Houston was booked on a marijuana possession charge, stemming from the same incident. Both charges are misdemeanors.
Coach Larry Fedora has yet to make a decision on whether to reprimand Fletcher, 21, and Houston, 22.
"I have been made aware of the situation and am gathering all the facts. After all the facts are in, I then will make my decision pending the legal process on any action that I feel appropriate," Southern Miss coach Larry Fedora said in a written statement.

Definitely "knuckleheads." Ever since the football players moved to these off campus apartments, there has been all kinds of trouble with the players. Whether that's a testament to the apartments or the players, who knows.
