STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

The Georgia Southern student newspaper is reporting that Brent Russell was arrested Saturday night. The George Anne reports that Russell has been charged with disorderly conduct and obstruction of a law enforcement officer.

According to published reports, Russell was arrested outside of Rude Rudy's moments after a fight, and he refused to leave after officers had instructed him to leave the scene.

Russell will be referred to the Office of Judicial Affairs at Georgia Southern University. GSU Sports Information Director Barrett Gilham told WTOC after Monday's practice that head coach Jeff Monken told the team that Russell has been suspended indefinitely.
