Mark Stoops: Still gathering info on fight involving Kentucky players

Thursday February 5th, 2015

Kentucky head coach Mark Stoops said he is still trying to gather information about an alleged bar fight that involved three freshman Wildcat players and a Eastern Kentucky player.

Eastern Kentucky football player Colton Scurry said he was assaulted last month by Kentucky quarterback Drew Barker, wide receiver Dorian Baker and defensive lineman Tymere Dubose outside of a Richmond, Ky. bar. Eastern Kentucky University is located in Richmond, about 30 minutes from Kentucky's campus.

Stoops confirmed that those three players have been questioned in the incident and that no one has been charged.

"I've been reading a bunch of reports from what everybody said and, to this point, I don't know what's true and what's not," Stoops said to The Courier-Journal. "I have certain information and I just need to let the legal process go through its course."

Authorities said that Scurry told them that he was grabbed by "three or four people" who begin to hit him in the head and that he started to lose consciousness. Scurry was left with a broken nose and facial fractures as a result of the incident.

Richmond police said that once the inquiry into the alleged fight is complete, they will "take the appropriate action with regard to filing of charges against any person deemed to be culpable."
