    MIAMI -- Miami Hurricanes cornerback Antrel Rolle was suspended indefinitely Tuesday by coach Larry Coker after being charged this weekend with battery on a police officer.

    According to a police complaint, Rolle was involved in a fight in a street near campus early Sunday morning and resisted arrest, cursing and swinging his arms in an attempt to free himself and forcing officers to call for backup help.

    Along with the felony charge, Rolle was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence, both misdemeanors.

    "We take these accusations very seriously," Coker said in a statement announcing that Rolle had been suspended.

    Rolle bonded out of jail and is scheduled for a court appearance Aug. 2.

    He was expected to be one of the Hurricanes' top players after deciding in January to return for his senior season.

    His father, Alexander, is chief of police in nearby Homestead.

    The Hurricanes open the season Sept. 6 against Florida State.

        Miami is definitely hurting their reputation with the past two player problems.

          It seems that a Cane player in trouble with the law is actually more like living up to their reputation.

                MIAMI -- Hurricanes cornerback Antrel Rolle won't be tried for allegedly striking a police officer, and was reinstated to the team.

                Coach Larry Coker had indefinitely suspended Rolle after his arrest.

                "I am extremely pleased that there has been a positive resolution to the issue," Coker said in a statement Monday.

                Assistant State Attorney Michael Grieco said that while the arrest was "valid," Rolle's "post-arrest contrition and lack of criminal history" led to the decision to drop the case. The physical contact between Rolle and the officer was "merely incidental," Grieco said.

                Rolle -- whose father is chief of police in nearby Homestead -- also participated in an ride-along with Miami-Dade County police "during active nightlife hours," gaining an appreciation for officers' work, Grieco said.

                According to a police complaint, Rolle was involved in a fight in a street near campus earlier this month and resisted arrest, cursing and swinging his arms in an attempt to free himself and forcing officers to call for backup help.

                Along with the felony charge, Rolle was charged with disorderly conduct and resisting an officer without violence, both misdemeanors. He was suspended indefinitely from the team after the arrest.

                University spokesman Rick Korch said Monday that Rolle will be reinstated, though he was not sure when.

                Rolle was in court Monday with family members, including his father. They left the courtroom quickly without comment. Last season, Rolle was second on the team with two interceptions and finished sixth on the team with 47 tackles.

                Miami last week decided to admit star recruit Willie Williams, a 6-foot-2, 225-pound linebacker who had not disclosed his lengthy arrest record when he agreed to join the Hurricanes. The school said Williams would have to abide by several special academic conditions.

                Williams pleaded no contest earlier this summer in two separate incidents that occurred during a recruiting trip to the University of Florida. He was charged with setting off fire extinguishers at his hotel and a misdemeanor battery charge for hugging a woman without consent.

                EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Two Michigan State football players were arrested and charged with possessing a dangerous chemical compound after they allegedly planted homemade bombs that blew up outside campus apartments.

                Terry Love and Irving Campbell, both 19-year-old redshirt freshmen receivers, were arrested Tuesday morning as they left the scene of the first explosion, campus police said. A second bomb exploded shortly afterward, and a third was detonated by the campus police bomb squad.

                The men said they planted the bombs in Spartan Village as a prank, campus police Sgt. Florene McGlothian-Taylor said.

                No one was hurt and there was no property damage, McGlothian-Taylor said. The players were released on $500 bond after being arraigned Tuesday.

                If convicted of the misdemeanor, both could face up to 90 days in jail and a $100 fine, McGlothian-Taylor said.

                Coach John L. Smith will let the legal process play out and then decide if any disciplinary action is needed, assistant athletic director John Lewandowski said.

                Love has 19 catches for 208 yards and a touchdown this season. Campbell has not caught a pass.

                Barnett to go before grand jury probing Colorado scandal

                DENVER -- Colorado football coach Gary Barnett was called Friday to appear before a grand jury investigating his program's recruiting practices.

                Barnett did not immediately go before the panel. He wouldn't comment to reporters.

                He was suspended in February for comments he made about two women who accused football players of rape, then was reinstated in May after an investigative panel concluded he shouldn't be fired.

                The grand jury investigation is the first indication criminal charges could be filed in a scandal that led to sweeping changes in the football recruiting program and a scathing review of university leadership.

                At the governor's request, Attorney General Ken Salazar's office has been investigating. Salazar already decided against filing assault charges on allegations involving nine women dating to 1997, citing concerns about the evidence and the reluctance of the women to go forward with the cases.

                The grand jury has heard from players, director of football operations David Hansburg, campus police and others since May. Legal experts have said they think investigators are trying to figure out whether university funds were misused, among other things.

                Salazar's office has declined to comment.

                Vols DT McDaniel makes plea deal in assault case

                KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Tennessee defensive tackle Tony McDaniel pleaded guilty Thursday to hitting a student in the face during a pickup basketball game in January.

                McDaniel, suspended since the incident, will be allowed to return to the team, but coach Phillip Fulmer announced that McDaniel will have to sit out the first two games of the season, complete community service, attend anger management counseling and abide by a curfew for the fall semester.

                "He is a good young man that made a bad decision and now has a second chance to move forward. I hope and feel he will take advantage of it," Fulmer said.

                McDaniel made a deal with prosecutors to have the original felony charge reduced to misdemeanor assault. He was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days, but was placed on immediate probation and isn't expected to spend any time in jail.

                Knox County Criminal Court Judge Ray Jenkins told McDaniel that he will remain under supervised probation until he pays restitution to the victim.

                McDaniel was charged with aggravated assault in January and could have faced up to six years if convicted under the felony charge.

                His case also was dealt with by the university, which placed him on indefinite probation. He was suspended for the summer school sessions and is not allowed to enter the student recreation center where the fight took place, school officials said.

                The 6-foot-7, 295-pound McDaniel was accused of hitting Edward Goodrich, a 26-year-old student. Goodrich testified during a hearing in April that the punch broke his face in four places and doctors had to insert a metal plate to treat his injuries.

                McDaniel declined to be interviewed after the hearing. His attorney, Don Bosch, said he was very pleased with the outcome.

                "We appreciate Mr. Goodrich's position and, frankly, the seriousness of his injuries. This is a very serious matter that was unintended by Tony. We're going to make this right with Mr. Goodrich," Bosch said.

                McDaniel, who will be a junior this fall, made his first career start for Tennessee in the Volunteers' 38-7 win over Texas A&M in the Cotton Bowl.

                The defensive tackle is one of 13 Tennessee players who have been either arrested or cited for crimes ranging from aggravated assault to underage drinking since February 2004.

                Charges dropped, reduced against Vols from party brawl

                KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- Prosecutors dropped a felony aggravated assault charge against one Tennessee football player and reduced the charge against another Monday in a case stemming from a fight at a campus party last March.

                Tennessee defensive end Robert Ayers and linebacker Jerod Mayo, who both redshirted last season as freshmen, were charged with hitting a fellow student when several fights broke out between football players and members of Omega Psi Phi fraternity.

                The charge against Mayo was dismissed after a witness would not cooperate with prosecutors.

                The charge against Ayers was reduced to misdemeanor assault. He pleaded guilty to the lesser charge and now has nearly 12 months to pay court costs and make restitution to the victim. After that, the charge will be erased from his record. The amount of restitution has not yet been determined, but it will not be more than $3,000.

                Aggravated assault is a felony, and sentences could vary from 3 to 15 years in prison.

                In a statement Monday, Phillip Fulmer said that Ayers will have to sit out the first two games of the season, complete community service and anger management counseling and abide by a curfew during the fall semester.

                Ayers also was suspended from summer school and placed on indefinite probation by the university, Fulmer said.

                Mayo was not suspended from the team.

                "I was glad to see Jerod Mayo cleared of any issues," Fulmer said.
