HUNTINGTON, W.VA. (AP) - Marshall University defensive back DeQuan Bembry has been kicked off the school’s football team, some three months after his arrest outside a West Virginia bar.

Coach Doc Holliday announced Bembry’s dismissal in a news release Sunday morning. The one-line statement said Holliday was “very disappointed in DeQuan.”

Bembry and fellow defensive back T.J. Drakeford had been arrested on misdemeanor charges in April as police cleared several Huntington bars because of fights.

Bembry had been charged with assault on a police officer and underage consumption, both misdemeanors. Police said he had verbally assaulted an officer.
