While we’ve been busy covering all the major college athletic program arrests, the arrests of four Rice football players have slipped under the radar. Defensive end Cody Bauer and offensive lineman Cade Shaw were arrested last Saturday for possession of a firearm in their on-campus residence and and pair of cornerbacks were arrested later in the week.
Kevin Gaddis and Phillip Gaines were arrested on Monday. Gaddis was charged with two misdemeanors, theft and possession of two ounces or less of marijuana. Gaines was also arrested on misdemeanor marijuana possession.
We are aware of the allegations. We take these seriously,” Rice athletic director Rick Greenspan said. “Obviously, we have some investigations to do, both with the campus and off-campus (authorities), and when we have more information we’ll share it.”
