According to articles on Roanoke.com, Virginia Tech place kicker Cody Journell and two other Blacksburg men were arrested and charged with breaking and entering a residence Wednesday night.
The Roanoke Times reports that the three men entered the residence of Virginia Tech basketball player Dorenzo Hudson and his roommate, Sean Allen. The three men arrested were apparently looking for Allen, but when they didn’t find him, they left.
Police say that Zo and Allen then went after the three and an altercation ensued. The weapon turned out to be an Airsoft gun, not a real handgun.
Athletics director Jim Weaver issued a statement saying that Journell had been suspended from the football team immediately and indefinitely per the Athletics Department’s policy.
