Potential Surprise - WVU Players Involved in Brawl

Morgantown, W.Va., police are investigating a Saturday night incident in which a pair of West Virginia University students reported that they were assaulted by a group of people that included two Mountaineers football players, star tailback Noel Devine and potential starting slotback Jock Sanders.

However, police Sgt. Harold Sperringer said today that Devine and Sanders, both freshmen who are expected to help replace tailback Steve Slaton next season, "may not have been involved" in the incident outside Club Z Saturday.

"We just have one-half of the story right now," Sperringer said. "It's still early on."

No charges are pending, he added.

Husni Sangarie filed a report with police saying he could identify Devine and Sanders in a group of people removed from the bar after an altercation. Sangarie told police that, once outside the bar, he was struck in the back of the head by an unidentified assailant. Sangarie said he was on the ground when he was kicked by Devine, Sanders and others, and Ryan Lewis said he likewise was kicked and punched. Both declined medical treatment.

No sofas were involved in the incident, according to campus police.
