Cal Poly has suspended five football players who were arrested for trying to rob a Delta Sigma Phi fraternity house on Sunday morning. According to the San Luis Obsispo Tribune, drugs – specifically Xanax – may have been at the root of the attempted robbery. Cameron Akins, a 19-year old sophomore wide receiver, was in possession of a gun and was charged with robbery with a firearm, assault on a police officer and resisting arrest after a struggle with police. Via Cal Coast News:
The first officer on scene spotted Akins in the courtyard of the residence as he was confronting one of the victims. Akins then tried to flee before violently resisting multiple officers and civilians.
Akins bit one of the officers during the skirmish, but no one suffered any serious injuries. The officers recovered Akins’s weapon when they took him into custody.
Kristaan Ivory, a senior running back, Dominique Love, a redshirt freshman defensive back, Cortland Fort, a sophomore defensive back, and Jake Brito, a redshirt freshman running back were all charged with conspiracy to commit robbery. All five players appear to have had their bio pages removed from the Cal Poly football website, but remain listed on the depth chart. [via Cal Coast News]
