Four Auburn Players Arrested For Armed Burglary, Robbery

Four Auburn University football players have been arrested and charged in connection with a home invasion that took place on the morning of Friday, March 11th, 2011. According to a police report released by the Auburn PD, Antonio Goodwin, Kowalski Q. Kitchens, Michael McNeil, and Harrison Mosley were all taken in by police regarding a home invasion that took place at 12:22 a.m. on Friday.

They are charged with five counts of first degree robbery, one count of first degree burglary, and one count of third degree theft of property. Each is being held at the Lee County Jail with a $511,000 bond for their release.

In response Auburn football head coach Gene Chizik released a statement stating that all four of the players have been kicked off the Auburn football team.

"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."

Auburn Athletic Director Jay Jacobs also issued a statement in response to the arrests. 

"This type of behavior will not be tolerated at Auburn. I fully support Coach Chizik’s swift and decisive action to dismiss these four student-athletes from our football team effective immediately."
