KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Current and former University of Tennessee football players were named in reports regarding underage drinking at a weekend party, police said.

Current players Daniel Sola, Dontavius Blair, Dimarya Mixon, Justin Coleman, Malik Brown and former player Isaac Mobley were all cited by the Knox County, Tenn., Sheriff's Office for underage drinking Sunday, as well as several others not on the team.

Football player Danny O'Brien was charged with criminal impersonation, resisting arrest and underage consumption. Player A.J. Johnson, 21, and former player Dontavius Sapp, 22, were charged with resisting arrest and alcoholic beverage purchase violations, WBIR-TV, Knoxville, reported Monday.

The arrests came after police were called out twice to a party involving 80 to 90 guests at a South Knox County apartment complex. Their second visit came after reports a fight had broken out, the sheriff's office said.

A police report said marijuana residue was also found in a pipe in a bedroom apartment but no drug arrests have been made.
