Washington State players reportedly involved in fight that sent students to the hospital


According to the Spokesman-Review, six Washington State football players of "persons of interest" in a weekend brawl that sent two students to the hospital.

One person was able to capture some of the fight via Snapchat. The two Snapchat videos show multiple people throwing punches at each other at a backyard party, with others around the scene attempting to break up the multiple skirmishes.

Detectives are investigating the case, and Washington State associate athletic director Bill Stevens says that the football coaches are aware of the matter.

The Spokesman-Review is also reporting that two Washington State students were sent to the hospital over the incident, with one of the students suffering a broken jaw.

Alex Rodriguez, a 21-year-old senior, underwent surgery at Pullman Regional Hospital following the assault at a party early Saturday morning.

Another student received a bloody wound on the back of his head when he was thrown onto a slab of concrete. The student, who did not want his name published, said the group had been causing trouble - prying off pieces of a wooden railing, lighting fireworks among the crowd - and retaliated when he told them to leave.

No names of players allegedly involved in the brawl have been released. Washington State went 9-4 in the 2015 season, as the team is expected to be a potential contender in the Pac-12 North yet again in 2016.
