Two Ole Miss Football Players Arrested Wednesday Night


Yesterday was the first day of the spring semester and some students reunited with the Square last night — but some partied a a little too much. Last night, Oxford police arrested two Ole Miss players: safety Trae Elston and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow for disorderly conduct.

According to the Lafayette County Detention Center’s booking log, the two players were arrested around midnight. Elston was also charged with resisting arrest. Exact details remain unknown and the university spokespersons have not yet returned calls. However, the players were seen on campus on their way to classes this morning according to university students.

Elston is a three-year starter for the football team with a record of 59 tackles this season as well as an interception, three pass breakups and a forced fumble/recovery.

Stringfellow is a redshirt sophomore wide receiver transfer from Washington Huskies expected to play this football season. He transferred from the Huskies after an incident post-Superbowl last year from which he was not reinstated to the Huskies football team.

Seattle P-I Sports blog has further details of the said incident:

Police investigated Stringfellow and former teammate Cyler Miles, UW’s expected starting quarterback, after their alleged involvement in a pair of assaults at UW on the night the Seattle Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII. Huskies coach Chris Petersen suspended both players indefinitely after their alleged altercations with Seahawks fans; Miles is a fan of the Denver Broncos.

No charges were filed against Miles, but Stringfellow was charged with two counts of fourth-degree assault and one count of malicious mischief. In a plea agreement, Stringfellow was sentenced to five days on a work crew, was fined $693 and was ordered to attend anger-management counseling.

Both players missed spring football practices, but Petersen reinstated Miles to the team in mid-May. The 6-foot-3, 229-pound Stringfellow was not reinstated and decided to transfer.

Despite the past incident Stringfellow has tweeted about his love for the Rebels. He had sat out for the 2014 season per NCAA requirements on transfers but he might be able to play this season.

There has not been any word from head coach Hugh Freeze yet.
