ATHENS (WVVA) - Three Concord University football players are facing multiple charges after an alleged altercation at an Athens apartment complex.

Russell Bailey Jr., 22, of Beckley; Maricco Sanders, 22, of Welford, S.C.; and Riyahd Richardson, 22, also of Welford, were all arrested Friday and charged with malicious wounding, petit larceny and conspiracy stemming from an alleged altercation that occurred last Monday, according to Dep. Walters with the Mercer County Sheriff's Department.

Walters said the suspects went to the apartment complex for an apparent drug purchase when an altercation ensued. Walters said a firearm was present but not discharged.

The incident is being investigated as a home invasion/robbery.

Walters said money and a gun were taken from the residence.

The three players in question are not currently on the football roster at Concord University's website.
