Two Missouri players arrested in separate incidents

Thursday, September 20, 2007

COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Police have arrested two reserve defenders on the Missouri football team in separate incidents.

John Stull, a redshirt freshman defensive lineman, was arrested by Columbia police early Monday on a municipal assault charge, police said.

A 26-year-old man told police that Stull punched him in the mouth in the parking lot of a local restaurant. The pair had argued over money owed from damages to an apartment, the victim said. The fight took place about 4 a.m. on Sept. 6.

Stull, Missouri's No. 2 defensive end behind starter Stryker Sulak, is on two years of unsupervised probation for a misdemeanor peace disturbance conviction from February 2006. He has made one tackle in three games this year.

Athletic department spokesman Chad Moller said Wednesday that Stull's status with the team was being reviewed by coach Gary Pinkel.

Columbia police also arrested backup linebacker Steve Redmond and former Missouri softball player Kendra Power at 3 a.m. Sunday on suspicion of throwing a nuisance party at their home. Both were issued summons and released.
