Three Auburn University softball players were arrested Thursday morning, Auburn Police confirm.
According to the story that was broken by WRBL-TV out of Columbus, senior Haley Fagan, sophomore Makayla Martin, and freshman Brittany Maresette were arrested and charged with second-degree possession of marijuana and paraphernalia at 12:47 A.M. Thursday morning.
The Tigers played a game at Jane B. Moore Field just hours prior, with all three players competing in the 7-3 win over Kennesaw State. Fagan went 1-for-4 at the plate, Martin tossed six innings in the circle, allowing three runs on eight hits while striking out three. Maresette served as a pinch runner, and later scored in the game.
More details of this event will be released at a later time. However, it has been confirmed that all three players have been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.
