Three Eastern Michigan football players will face assault charges after an altercation last Friday, August 29, 2014, according to Ypsilanti, Michigan police records. MLive reports that Darius Scott, Quincy Jones and Jay Jones were involved in an assault that police reports reveal happened at 12:49 PM at Huron River Drive and LeForge Road.

Allegations include charges of "strong arm" assault.

Jay Jones, a junior, is a wide receiver for the Eastern Michigan Eagles and did not play in last week's opener against Morgan State.  Jones, a junior appeared in 10 games in 2012, making three starts, and four catches for 61 yards and a touchdown against Central Michigan.

Quincy Jones, a junior and wide receiver, likewise did not play last Saturday, but played in 11 games, making one start against Bowling Green last November 23, 2013, and set a new career standard with 25 yards receiving at Northern Illinois last October 26, 2013.

Darius Scott, a senior cornerback, played in seven games for the Eagles in 2013, making five starts on defense with a recorded 30 tackles.

University officials did not comment on whether any of the three players will take part in the Eagles next game against Florida. Assistant athletic director Greg Steiner told MLive that the university will follow its standard policy regarding disciplinary action.
