Defense attorney John Rogers said three members of the men's Billikens basketball team were taken into police custody Saturday and were released the same afternoon. "I was contacted over the weekend by family members of an unnamed number of St. Louis University basketball players who were concerned that their sons were arrested and being questioned regarding allegations of a sexual assault on campus at St. Louis University," said Rogers.
Rogers said all three basketball players are cooperating with the St. Louis Police Department's ongoing investigation. "I know generally that there was a female student who made a complaint of a sexual assault, and I know there were a number of statements made by various members of the St. Louis University basketball team denying any criminal wrongdoing."
