Five players on the IPFW women's basketball team were cited for illegal possession of an alcoholic beverage Thursday.
The players were freshmen Josie Fisher, DeJour Young and Peyton Fallis and sophomores KeShyra McCarver and Allyson Bunch.
The charges are Class C misdemeanors.
“The IPFW athletic department is generally very proud of the conduct of our student-athletes and social responsibility is one of our three core values," athletic director Kelley Hartley Hutton said in a written statement. "When there are conduct infractions and discipline issues, we deal with them internally, consistent with university policies,”
A media report cites a source in stating the players were at a party Wednesday where they were cited for the offenses.
The charges were filed in Allen Superior Court and today is when the five are scheduled to appear in for a hearing.
