Four members of the Oregon State football team have been suspended for the opening game of the upcoming season after receiving ‘minor in possession of alcohol' charges late Sunday night.

Four members of the Oregon State football team have been suspended for the first game of the season after receiving ‘minor in possession of alcohol' (MIP) charges late Sunday night. Beavers head coach Mike Riley announced the decision after the conclusion of Monday's practice.

Redshirt freshmen defensive tackle Joe Lopez, redshirt freshman tight end Connor Hamlett, redshirt freshman tight end Tyler Perry, and freshman safety Will Storey were reported as the four players involved in the incident. Lt. Cord Wood of the Corvallis Police Department described the unfortunate run-in:

Officers were called to the townhouse apartment shared by Hamlett, Lopez, and Storey around 1 a.m. after there were complaints about a loud party.

The officer who arrived on the scene said occupants inside the apartment locked the door, shut the lights off, and turned off the stereo. The officer applied for a search warrant and forced entry was required.

There were "about 40 people" in the apartment and 36 of them were minors.

Along with the MIP charges, all four players involved were charged with 36 counts of hosting a party for minors, 36 counts of furnishing alcohol to minors, and one charge of unlawful amplified sound. Riley indicated there would be further internal punishment from the university as well.
