A member of Marquette's men's lacrosse team was arrested for disorderly conduct and resisting arrest on March 3 after he reportedly engaged in sexual activity in the volleyball locker room, according to Marquette Wire's John Steppe. The player has not been identified.

The athlete claimed he was at the Al McGuire Center on campus in Milwaukee, Wisc. to do laundry at 3:10 a.m. CT. However, it appeared that he did not have any laundry with him, according to officer Carolina Seidl's incident report.

Marquette Athletics spokesperson Scott Kuykendall denied the sexual activity occurred in the women’s volleyball locker room, per Stepp. 

Marquette University Television released an audio recording of the 911 phone call to the school's authorities on Wednesday. In the recording, a janitor says he witnessed the incident in the women's volleyball locker room. 

"I want to report that there's a couple of kids in there having sex in the girl's volleyball locker room," a university janitor is heard telling the 911 operator. "If you send somebody over here they'll catch them right away."

The sexual activity was consensual, the female student told MUPD, though her claim did not absolve the lacrosse player from any of the aformentioned allegations. 

Marquette head coach Joe Amplo suspended 19 players from the team after they lost to Cleveland State on March 9. At the moment, there is no reported link between the March 3rd arrest and subsequent mass suspension. 

Marquette is 6–6 in 2019 with three losses in its last four matches. The Golden Eagles will face Duke on April 20 in Bethpage, N.Y.
