Phillip Warren kicked off Marshall
HUNTINGTON, W.Va. -- Marshall football coach Doc Holliday has dismissed defensive back Phillip Warren and plans to discipline three other players following their weekend arrests outside a Huntington bar.
Holliday said Tuesday that Warren has been kicked off the team for an unspecified violation of team rules and policies.
A criminal complaint accuses Warren of striking a police officer who was assisting patrons out of a bar early Sunday.
Warren is charged with battery on police, disorderly conduct and obstructing an officer.
A Cabell County Magistrate Court clerk said she had no information Tuesday on court dates for the players.
Warren started one game last season and compiled 26 tackles.
