Three football players from the University of Texas were arrested early Monday morning at a downtown restaurant. The players were accompanied by a former player who was also arrested.
Sources say that officers asked the four men to leave Roppolo's Pizza on Sixth Street. But the four men refused to leave the establishment and were taken into custody.
Players Kenneth Vaccaro, Alex Okafor, and Barrett Matthews were charged with failure to obey a lawful order. Vaccaro and Okafor were both starters for the 2011-2012 Longhorn defense.
