Tennessee players Da'Rick Rogers and Darren Myles Jr. are whisked away from the Knox County Detention Center Friday morning after they posted bond following a bar brawl involving several Volunteer players.
The brawl left Knoxville police officer Robert Capouellez, a patron in the club, with a head wound. A spokesman for Tennessee Medical Center said Capouellez, found unconscious lying on the street when authorities arrived, was in stable condition.
Rogers, 18, was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting arrest. Rogers, a freshman receiver, is considered the crown jewel of coach Derek Dooley's first recruiting class.
Darren Myles Jr., a sophomore safety, was charged with assault, resisting arrest and evading arrest. He is accused of assaulting university police officer Brian Greenlee, who was among the first to arrive on the scene to help Capouellez.
The investigation continues, and two other players — receiver Denarius Moore, 21, and defensive tackle Montori Hughes, 19 — were being questioned about the assault on Capouellez. They have not been charged.
