Two University of Hawaii football starters — outside linebacker Aaron Brown and left wideout Darius Bright — have been suspended from team-related activities following their arrests this morning.

They were accused of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor, for their alleged involvement in a fight in a Waikiki nightclub.

UH athletic director Jim Donovan said an arrest is considered a "major violation," according to the school’s student-athlete rules of conduct.

Donovan said the Warriors, who open their season against Colorado Saturday, will not be allowed to practice or attend meetings until their cases are reviewed. Donovan and UH head coach Greg McMackin discussed the matter today, and will be meeting Monday.

The players have two avenues of appeal if they disagree with the impending punishment.

While suspended, they remain on scholarship and may attend classes.
