Court dates set for Vols players arrested in brawl

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Court dates have been scheduled for two Tennessee players arrested after a July 9 bar brawl that left an off-duty police officer seriously injured.

According to Knox County General Sessions Court records, Darren Myles Jr. is scheduled appear Aug. 12 on charges of assault, resisting arrest and evading arrest. Myles was dismissed from the team after his arrest.

Freshman wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers is scheduled to appear on disorderly conduct and resisting arrest charges on Sept. 14, over a week after the Volunteers play their first game.

The Knoxville police investigation into the brawl is ongoing, and no one has been charged for the assault of officer Robert Capouellez, who suffered a head injury while trying to break up the fight.
