Texas Tech tight end Jace Amaro and running back Kenny Williams were booked into the Lubbock County Criminal Detention Center on Friday evening on second-degree felony charges of using a credit card without their names on it to buy roughly $100 worth of drinks at a local bar.
The two sophomores reportedly bought several rounds of drinks with the card while wearing Texas Tech gear. When bar employees called police, the two players repeatedly reminded the staff that they were on the team.
Associate athletics director Blayne Beal acknowledged that he was aware that Amaro and Williams had been arrested in a statement.
"Texas Tech will allow the Lubbock Police Department to conduct its investigation into the matter involving two football student-athletes," Beal said. "Once that investigation has been completed and more facts are known, the university and head coach Tommy Tuberville will take appropriate disciplinary action if necessary."
A second-degree felony is punishable by two to 20 years in prison and up to a $10,000 fine.
