HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Four Marshall football players have
been arrested and are being held in the Western Regional Jail.

The jail says those arrested were running back Martin Ward,
defensive back Phillip Warren, cornerback Corie Wilson and
linebacker Stefone Grace.

Ward is charged with disorderly conduct. Warren is charged with
battery on police, disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer.
Wilson is charged with obstructing an officer and fleeing on foot,
while Grace is charged with disorderly conduct and obstructing an
officer.

The jail said the players were being held Sunday pending
arraignment and didn't indicate whether the players had attorneys.

Marshall coach Doc Holliday issued a statement saying the
program is aware of the situation and still gathering facts.
Holliday says once that process is complete, he will handle the
matter appropriately.
