According to the Clarion-Ledger, the fallout from the on-campus brawl continued after the April 10 fight.

Here's video of the fight.

Here is a list of the additional players that were arrested:

The seven players arrested Thursday include: freshman wide receiver True Gibson, junior defensive end Ramonte Bell, junior wide receiver Marquis Warford, running back Arron Baker, defensive lineman Sterling Shippy, junior defensive lineman Randall Tucker. Claiborne County sheriff Frank Davis also identified Cornelle Gilmore as a member of the football team, although Gilmore is not listed on the school’s football roster on the web site.

The charges are reportedly all misdemeanors ranging from "malicious mischief to simple assault."

No other students have been charged in connection to the incident.
