    Tennessee football players Martavius French, Aaron Willis and Isaac Washington have been arrested and charged with simple possession, unlawful drug paraphernalia and juvenile incident, according to the UTPD arrest log. The three players involved have been suspended indefinitely.

    “We are aware of an incident that occurred at Stokely Hall involving football student-athletes,” Tennessee said in a statement. “The individuals involved in the incident have been suspended indefinitely from football activities pending further review of the matter by the university.”

    The incident occurred on March 9 at Stokely Hall on UT’s campus. Also charged are Clinton Warren and an unnamed juvenile, according to UTPD. The incident happened around 8 p.m. on Tuesday at the residence hall at 1311 Lake Loudoun Blvd.

    According to police, the males entered the apartment at Stokely, knocked on a door and when a roommate answered the door, was assaulted by one male. None of the four arrested have been charged with assault. A witness and the victim said they did not know the suspects’ identities.

    French just completed his first season at Tennessee after signing with the Vols during the 2020 recruiting cycle out of Memphis. Willis and Washington signed with UT during the early signing period in December under fired head football coach Jeremy Pruitt.
