4 Ex-Auburn Players Indicted By Grand Jury

On March 11th, four Auburn football players were arrested for armed robbery.  Antonio Goodwin, Shaun Kitchens, Mike McNeil and Dakota Mosley were immediately dismissed from the Tiger team by Gene Chizik.

Today all four players have been indicted by a grand jury and are due to be arraigned on May 26th.  A trial date has been tentatively set for June 16th.

Interestingly, four other current AU football players are listed as potential witnesses in the case — Anthony Morgan, DeAngelo Benton, Neiko Thorpe and star running back Mike Dyer.  None of those four have been accused of any wrongdoing, but you can bet they — and Auburn — would just as soon their names not have come up in connection to this case at all.  Even as potential witnesses.

Auburn Dismisses Four Football Players Arrested For Robbery

Four Auburn football players have been arrested and charged with five counts of first degree robbery, according to the Auburn Police Department.

Those four players have been permanently dismissed from the team, according to Auburn.

The four players: safety Michael McNeil, wide receiver Antonio Goodwin, receiver Shaun Kitchens and tight end Dakota Mosley.

You can read the statement from the Auburn Police Department. All four players are charged with five counts of first degree robbery, one count of first degree burglary, and one count of third-degree theft of property.

According to Auburn police, five victims reported a theft of personal property early Friday morning. The victims told police that three black males were present with one holding a handgun. The four suspects were found with a pistol and the stolen property and then taken into custody, according to police.

Auburn coach Gene Chizik released the following statement:

“The players arrested in connection with this deeply troubling incident have been permanently dismissed from our football team. While we realize the legal process will run its course and these young men have a right for their case to be heard, playing for Auburn University is an honor and a privilege. It is not a right.

“We hold our student-athletes to a high standard of conduct on and off the field as representatives of Auburn University, and this kind of behavior is not tolerated.

“I am extremely disappointed an embarrassed by the actions of these individuals. I want to personally apologize to all of those who were impacted by this senseless act, including the victims, Auburn University and the Auburn family.”
