In response to the arrest of linebackers Denzel Nkemdiche and Serderius Bryant last weekend, Coach Hugh Freeze issued this statement: “We are aware of the incidents and gathering facts. Denzel and Sederius are suspended until we know more.”
Nkemdiche was charged with disturbing the peace, disorderly conduct and failure to comply with a police officer around midnight Saturday. Oxford Police Chief Joey East described the charges against Nkemdiche as misdemeanors.
According to an article in the Clarion-Ledger, police were called to The Retreat apartments in Oxford where Nkemdiche was celebrating his 21st birthday party.
Bryant was taken in on the charge of public intoxication and disturbing the peace.
Nkemdiche tweeted to fans: “Hopefully I won’t be judged by the exaggerated claims of how I acted on my 21st birthday. I still know what’s important in life. God got me.”
