More QU Players Arrested In Campus Fight

HAMDEN, Conn. (AP) _ Police say three more Quinnipiac University basketball players have been arrested on misdemeanor charges after a September campus fight that injured four students.

Two other players were charged earlier over the Sept. 18 brawl. Hamden police say the three arrested Thursday have been released on bail and appear in court Dec. 6.

Police said 20-year-old junior forward Jamee Jackson of Irvington, N.J., was charged with assault, conspiracy to commit assault, and breach of peace. Twenty-two-year-old junior guard David Johnson of Jackson, N.J., and 18-year-old freshman guard Nate Gause of Poughkeepsie, N.Y., were charged with conspiracy to commit assault and breach of peace. It’s not immediately known who is representing them.

Quinnipiac has sanctioned senior guard James Johnson and sophomore forward Ike Azotom, who have pleaded not guilty to misdemeanor assault and breach of peace.
