On Tuesday, Rutgers players Chris Long and Max Melton were suspended from the football team due to an incident involving a paintball gun that transpired on Monday night. Per The Spun...

University police said that three students suffered minor injuries after being hit by paintballs from a moving vehicle around 10 p.m. ET. They didn’t request medical attention at the scene of the incident, though.

Shortly after an investigation was launched to figure out who was responsible for firing paintballs at students, the police arrested Rutgers defensive backs Chris Long and Max Melton.

Long and Melton were each charged with three counts of aggravated assault and a weapons count. They are expected to make their initial court appearances on Nov. 4.

Rutgers head coach Greg Schiano already released a statement on this concerning situation. As you’d expect, he’s disappointed with his players’ actions.

“I was informed that Chris Long and Malachi Melton were taken into police custody early this morning as a result of an incident involving a paintball gun,” Schiano said. “Both players have been suspended immediately.”
