MURFREESBORO, Tenn., April 9 (UPI) -- Four men, including a Tennessee State University football player, were arrested after a brawl outside the Murfreesboro, Tenn., Elks Lodge, police said.

Police described the incident early Sunday morning as "multiple fights."


Arrested were TSU defensive back Darrian Jonta Hanna, 20, Travis Damon Murphy Jr., 19, Justin Smith, 19, and Raynard Toran Williamson, 19. Hanna was charged with disorderly conduct, underage consumption and public intoxication, Gannett Tennessee reported.

Smith also punched Officer Seth Jackson in the face as Smith ran to a waiting car, Jackson said.
