Alford charges lowered, 2 more suspects arrested
HATTIESBURG, Miss. (AP) — Southern Miss police have arrested two more students in association with a Wednesday on-campus altercation that landed Golden Eagles quarterback Anthony Alford behind bars.
The 18-year-old Alford was initially booked on an aggravated assault charge, but investigators dropped that in favor of two other charges: conspiracy to possess a firearm on campus and hindering prosecution.
The Hattiesburg American reports (http://hatne.ws/UvTvmg ) Curtis Williams and Bradford Drummond, both 19, were booked into the Forrest County Jail Thursday evening.
Drummond, of Sumrall, was charged with hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence. Williams, of Moss Point, shares Drummond's charges, and also was charged with possession of a weapon on school property.
Chief Bob Hopkins says university police still are looking for two more suspects for their alleged involvement in Wednesday's fight.
