Report: 4 Kentucky Players Suspended For South Carolina Game After Incident Involving BB Guns

Four Kentucky football freshmen will miss this weekend's game against South Carolina after being connected to an incident involving a BB gun, which led to the Lexington campus being shut down on Sunday night. Dorian Baker, Drew Barker, Tymere Dubose, and Stanley Williams will all miss the big SEC East division game against the Gamecocks.

"Proper conduct is emphasized as a core value of our program," Coach Mark Stoops said. "If we have a situation in which someone who does not act according to our standards, we hold him accountable...

Today, University of Kentucky Police continued its investigation into Sunday's incident on campus. We have been able to identify all of the people in a picture from last night's incident captured on security cameras. Moreover, three BB guns connected with the incident were recovered as part of our investigation. UK Police officers also have interviewed those identified in the picture and worked closely with the Office of Student Affairs and the Department of Athletics on the appropriate next steps. To that end, we will be meeting tomorrow with the Fayette County Attorney's office to determine what actions should take place. Once that investigation is completed, that information will be turned over to the Office of Student Affairs as dictated by university policy to investigate whether any violations of the code of student conduct have taken place."

Dorian Baker has 122 yards receiving and one touchdown on the season, while Stanley "Boom Williams" has 174 total yards and two touchdowns. Barker and Dubose are yet to see playing time for the Wildcats.
