Two Ole Miss football players arrested, charged

OXFORD, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi safety Trae Elston and receiver Damore'ea Stringfellow have been arrested and charged with disorderly conduct early Thursday.

Elston was also charged with resisting arrest. Both were booked in the Lafayette County Detention Center just after midnight, according to jail records. They were still in jail as of noon on Thursday.

Elston played in 12 games last season, finishing with 59 tackles and an interception. Stringfellow is a transfer from Washington who sat out last season because of NCAA transfer rules. Stringfellow left Washington after pleading guilty to two counts of assault and one count of mischief after an incident in February.

Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze says in a statement that "we are gathering facts on the matter."

The Jackson (Miss.) Clarion-Ledger first reported the arrests.
