IU’s Yogi Ferrell, Stanford Robinson apologize for arrests

Two prominent Indiana University basketball players – Yogi Ferrell and Stanford Robinson – were arrested early Friday morning outside a downtown Bloomington popular nightclub.

Ferrell and Robinson were each arrested outside Kilroy’s Sports Bar around 1 a.m. and preliminarily charged with minor consumption of an alcoholic beverage and possession of false identification, the Indiana State Excise Police announced.

“At approximately 1:00 am, Farrell (sic) and Robinson allegedly attempted to enter Kilroy’s Sports Bar located at 319 North Walnut using false identifications,” the police said in a press release. “Indiana State Excise Police officers working inside the premise recognized the identifications to be false at that time.”

Ferrell, who turns 21 in two weeks, and Robinson, 18, were each issued summonses and released. They will be required to appear at the Monroe County Courthouse at 8:30 a.m. Sunday.

In a statement from the university, Ferrell said: “I apologize for letting down my family, coaches, teammates and fans and truly regret the mistake I made. This is something I have to learn from, use better judgment and I have a responsibility as a leader on this team to make sure nothing like this happens again.”

Robinson expressed a similar sentiment: “I’m very sorry for my actions. I know I have embarrassed my family and this program and have let a lot of people down. I have no excuses for the mistakes I made and I take full responsibility for them.”
