Two Memphis players arrested at nightclub

Sept. 3, 2007 at 3:15 PM

MEMPHIS, Sept. 3 (UPI) -- University of Memphis Tigers head basketball coach John Calipari implemented a curfew and no-nightclub rule for his players after two of them were arrested.

Shawn Taggart and Jeff Robinson were arrested outside a Beale Street nightclub early Sunday and both charged with misdemeanor counts of disorderly conduct and inciting a riot, the Memphis Commercial Appeal reported.

By Sunday afternoon, Calipari had called a news conference to announce a curfew and a no-nightclub policy for his team.

He said that discipline for the two arrested players would be determined after a police and school investigation.

"Until we get all the information, the only thing I can tell you is, it's going to be a firm hand," Calipari said. "I'm not happy. I know they're going to screw up. They're young kids, and they're going to do dumb things, like my own children. But how many times have I said, nothing good happens in a club after midnight? We'll deal with this; a lot of it will be in-house. Some of it's not going to be."
