NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — More scandal is surrounding the Rutgers University football program as wide receiver Leonte Carroo has now been suspended indefinitely.
Rutgers football coach Kyle Flood would only say the suspension came after an incident outside the stadium on Saturday night, CBS2 reported.
Five other players were arrested and dismissed from the program in the last 10 days because of investigations surrounding an assault and home invasions.
Defensive backs Nadir Barnwell, Dre Boggs, Ruhann Peele, Delon Stephenson and fullback Razohnn Gross were kicked off the team last weekend. Initially, the five had been suspended.
According to the Middlesex County prosecutor’s office, Barnwell, Peele, Gross and Stephenson were charged with aggravated assault, riot and conspiracy to commit a riot for a fight in New Brunswick that left a man with a broken jaw back in April.
Boggs is charged in connection with two home-invasion robberies in April and May, the county prosecutor’s office said.
