Arizona Wildcat spring practice began Monday, so it was just a matter of time before we got our first "Arizona football players arrested" story. And here it is!
It began with a house party late last Thursday night, and from the football team, only cornerback Jared Tevis was invited. But Tevis brought four teammates, who were politely asked to leave. According to the police report,
one of the men responded by shoving one of the women backwards. The man was later identified as former safety Joshua Robbins. After being shoved, the resident slapped Robbins, who then proceeded to punch her in the face - starting a brawl between the football players and members of the party.
The players left after the brawl, but before leaving said, "We will be back with our homies." A short time later, the players returned "in a group of between 10 and 30," and a man later identified as sophomore offensive tackle Fabbians Ebbele forcibly entered the home and "began punching everybody he could reach."
People at the party told officers the UA players entered the home and began assaulting male members of the party while several women attempted to stop another fight from happening. One woman was pushed up against the wall by Robbins. Robbins continued to push other female guests and residents.
Members of the party identified Grandon after he "punched a female guest in her face with a closed fist and began punching other females in the face."
Police arrived to find six players speeding away in an SUV, being chased by screaming women, which, honestly, sounds pretty par for the course on a Thursday night in Tucson. When all was said and done, four players were arrested, not including Robbins, so more charges could still be in the mix.
