HUNTINGTON, W.Va. — A Marshall University football player has been suspended from the team indefinitely after being arrested over the weekend in Huntington.
Nathaniel Devers, 22, of Akron, was charged with obstructing, disorderly conduct, public intoxication and two counts of battery of an officer after an incident early Sunday morning at a restaurant on 4th Avenue.
According to the criminal complaint, Devers and three other men were causing a problem at the restaurant and they were asked to leave and refused to. Devers allegedly hit an officer in the face with a closed fist and another officer in the back of the head. Police said Devers had slurred speech and smelled of alcohol.
Devers, a redshirt junior lineman, was suspended for a violation of team rules.
