The most serious charges involve an alleged assault.  Quinton Baker, 19; Xavier Lane, 20; Tyler Obee, 18; and Cecil Stallings, 20, who were each charged with complicity to wanton endangerment, first degree; complicity to assault, fourth degree; and criminal trespass, third degree. Jahcour Pearson, 19, and Christopher Johnson, 21, were each charged with criminal trespass, third degree. Andrew O'Bryan, 19, was charged with menacing, and criminal trespass, third degree. The March 5 incident was captured by security cameras. WKU announced all six current players have been suspended indefinitely.  O'Bryan is no longer with the team. Former Ashland Blazer star Quinton Baker was once a Kentucky commit.  In his first season in Bowling Green, he rose to the ranks as the No. 2 running back behind Ace Wales and earned freshman All-Conference honors.  Poised for a breakout season in Mike Sanford's first fall as the Toppers head coach, it's Baker's second off the field incident in as many years.  According to Spectrum Sports, he pleaded ‘guilty’ in 2016 to DUI and marijuana possession charges.
