It was said the four were going to be charged with a crime, which is why they have been suspended for Kentucky’s huge SEC East game against the reeling South Carolina Gamecocks Saturday.

The players reportedly were shooting airsoft guns while playing a game of man hunt on Kentucky’s campus.

"According to reports, police were called around 9:30 Sunday night to a residence complex on the south end of campus, near the football facilities, after fielding calls about possible shots being fired. UK and Lexington police searched the area for two hours and recovered three airsoft guns from the players themselves, while another was discarded. The Herald-Leader wrote in a tweet that, “[a]ccording to papers filed in court, the players said they were playing a game of ‘man hunt’ on campus Sunday night.”"

On Thursday, the four suspended players – wide receiver Dorian Baker, defensive end Tymere Dubose, running back Stanley Williams, and their highly-touted quarterback Drew Barker, were all charged with second-degree disorderly conduct according to The Lexington Herald-Ledger.

Kentucky and South Carolina will kick-off at 7:30 pm EST and the game is on the SEC Network.
