Three Ball State players were involved in an incident at a local restaurant in which a member of their dining party attempted to pay the bill with money covered in fecal matter.
According to the Muncie Police report, defensive back Darius Conaway, defensive lineman Kennan Noel and linebacker Nicholas Isaacs were listed as three of six “subjects that were allegedly causing the problems” around noon Sunday.
The suspect, a 17 year old, left their table, which was also occupied by the three Ball State football players, and went into the bathroom after their waitress gave him his bill, according to the police report. After returning to the table he put the money into the black folder, according to police who sourced a security video of the event.
The group’s waitress told police she saw the suspect laughing when she picked up the check and smelled a “foul odor.” She said two of the bills were covered in a brown substance that she later realized was fecal matter.
The 17-year-old male was still at the restaurant when police arrived and was taken to Delaware County Juvenile Probation Center and charged with battery with bodily waste.
Ball State said it was aware of the allegations and was handling the matter.
"We find the alleged actions deplorable," Joseph Hernandez, associate athletic director for media and alumni relations, told the Ball State Daily." We are continuing to collect information on the matter and will refrain from further judgment until then."
