Alleged attack by Rutgers football players caught on video, report says
The alleged unprovoked assault that led to charges against four Rutgers football players — as well as two former players — was caught on video, NJ.com reports, citing sources with knowledge of the events.
Authorities announced charges against 10 people in total this week in connection with that attack and a series of home invasions. Most are current or former Rutgers students, and many are current or former members of the football team. Former Rutgers player Tejay Johnson is the only person implicated in both the assault and the break-ins.
The NJ.com report cites a source saying that New Brunswick police learned about the video recently and came to the Hale Center Football Training Facility on Aug. 28, where they confiscated smartphones from team members. Some coaches were present, though it wasn't clear if head coach Kyle Flood was among them, according to the report.
Then-players Nadir Barnwell, Ruhan Peele, Razohnn Gross and Delon Stephenson were implicated in the attack, along with Johnson and Delon Stephenson's older brother, Daryl, another former player. They and Andre Boggs, implicated in the break-ins, have all been kicked off the team, Flood announced Saturday.
