Three football players arrested, three suspended from team

Three University of Richmond football players have been suspended indefinitely from the team, and another has left the school, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch.

Wide receiver Donte Boston, junior, and linebacker Harry Lee Daniel, sophomore, have been deactivated until further notice, according to the report. Wide receiver Marcus Snipes, a freshman, was also suspended for a violation of team rules. Another freshman, defensive tackle Rashad Winston, has withdrawn from the school.

Capt. Beth Simonds of the University of Richmond police department confirmed that Daniel, Snipes and Winston were arrested in January in connection with an incident that was reported Dec. 8, 2010, in Marsh Hall. Daniel was charged with grand larceny, and Snipes and Winston were charged with petty larceny.

The three players are awaiting trials later this spring in Richmond. Winston's trial is scheduled for April 29, while the trials of Daniel and Snipes are scheduled for April 1. The athletic department could not be reached for comment.

Boston, Daniel and Winston all attended Henrico County high schools. Boston attended Varina High School, while Daniel and Winston attended Highland Springs High School. Coach Latrell Scott also suspended Boston for the first game last season.
