Four NC State soccer players dismissed after arrests

Editor's Note: Charges of resisting arrest and underage drinking against Nader Jaibat were later dismissed and his record was expunged.

Four North Carolina State University soccer players were dismissed from the soccer team following their arrests at a sports bar Sunday night, assistant media relations director Cavan Foster said.

Police responded to The Downtown Sports Bar at approximately 1:45 a.m. Sunday after an altercation inside. Jim Sughrue, a spokesman for the Raleigh Police Department, said Nader Jaibat, Monbo Bokar, Michael Nelson and Jonathan Ray were escorted out of the bar where one student-athlete engaged in a physical altercation with another individual.

"When dealing with NC State students we notify NC State police, we work with them and they work with us," said Sughrue.

All of the student-athletes were charged with resisting, delaying or obstructing arrest. Jaibat and Bokar were charged with underage drinking, Nelson received a charge of simple affray and Ray was charged with disorderly conduct.

In at least one case, an individual had a false I.D. but no charges were made against the establishment.

Due to the incident, the NC State athletic department has said student-athletes are no longer allowed to go to Downtown Sports Bar.

The Downtown Sports Bar is the same bar that grabbed headlines earlier this year after a customer said he was kicked out because of his race. Criminal chargers were dismissed after the court ruled there was not enough evidence to go to trial, general manager Todd Chriscoe maintains he did nothing wrong.

    Underage drinking shouldn't be a crime.

    If you resist, delay and obstruct the police you are one of several things: stupid, drunk, both or think you're untouchable because your an athlete. Didn't work out for these four. It rarely does. The Coaches did exactly the right thing. This is the full story.

    I actually think the coaches should have investigated instead of immediately dismissing these athletes. Altercations sometimes cannot be avoiding in some instances... I wish they had waited for the full story.

    It took WRAL longer to print the article than I expected. At least the WolfPack coaches did the right thing immediately.

    I agree. It's a shame that they've been dismissed instead of suspended, but the coach wanted to send a message.

    It's Swofford's fault!

    We do not know the whole story. However, these four men put The University in a bad light. So, they were dismissed. I applaud the staff.

    LOL, 4 of TOBs best were found with Performance Enhancing Drugs, plenty of pot and evidence of intent to distribute illegal substances. They miraculously were never found guilty because of a technicality in the way the house was searched. State nation likes to think TOB is tough, not so much. The punishment? Sitting out the 1st half of the WCU game. Hypocrites. Go take an "online" class with your QB.
