Four Texas Tech football players, including the probable starting quarterback, were arrested over the weekend. Here's the latest on the situation.

Quarterback Jett Duffey, cornerback Desmon Smith, wide receiver Quan Shorts and linebacker Christian Malik-Shakur Taylor were all booked into a Lubbock County jail early Sunday morning.

Police were called onto the scene after reports of a potentially armed suspect.

The Star-Telegram has the details:

"Officer located a large group of people in front of the nightclub who were impeding traffic," Whitley said. "An officer observed an individual intentionally causing damage to a vehicle by smashing the windshield."

When officers attempted to arrest the suspect, the crowd became aggressive, Whitley said.

That's when police arrested the four Tech players and six other people.

Texas Tech has yet to release an official comment on the matter.
