Two UM Football Players Tased And Arrested

Two University of Montana football players, quarterback Gerald Kemp, and cornerback Trumaine Johnson were arrested early Sunday morning at a residence on North Russell after a physical altercation with Missoula police. According to the Missoula county jail roster, Kemp and Johnson were both charged with misdemeanor resisting arrest, obstructing a police officer, disorderly conduct, and failure to appear, while Kemp was also charged with misdemeanor assault for allegedly striking a police officer.  Police reports indicate that both players had to be tased in order to be subdued. Missoula Police Sergeant Jake Rosling says alcohol was also a factor in the incident. My interview with Sergeant Rosling is attached.

A statement from University of Montana athletic director Jim O’Day reads.. “We are continuing our investigation into the allegations, and will let the judicial system run its course. Any disciplining will be handled internally through our student-athlete code of conduct. The matter remains under investigation by the Missoula City Police Department. The University of Montana will have no further comment until after the investigation concludes, and the matter has gone through the court
