MISSOULA, Mont. -- Two University of Montana football players have denied charges filed after weekend arrests in which Missoula police used a stun gun to subdue them.
Cornerback Trumaine Johnson and quarterback Gerald Kemp were arrested after police were called about a noisy party at Johnson's apartment at 2:40 a.m. Sunday, hours after the team returned from a game in Flagstaff, Ariz.
Court records say Kemp hit an officer in the chest. Kemp was hit with the stun gun, followed by Johnson when he tried to intervene.
The players are charged with obstructing a peace officer, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct. Trial is set for Feb. 7.
Defense attorney Darla Keck says there are many witnesses to what happened.
School officials have said they will let the case work through the courts.
