Tevin Mgbo, another basketball player, is charged with kidnapping and reckless conduct, according to Fulton County Courthouse records. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that the three men appeared before a student conduct hearing on campus after the arrest warrants were issued.
Lucien Kidd, of Ohio, was also charged with rape in April. Head football coach Rich Freeman told 11Alive News that Kidd tried out for the team in 2010, but did not make the cut. The Journal-Constitution reports that Kidd was arrested in January for battery and destruction of property.
Each of the men was released on $10,000 bond after being arrested in connection to the rape charges.
