NEW BRITAIN - Four Central Connecticut football players have been suspended from Saturday's game at Youngstown State following their arrests at an off-campus party.

Twenty-year-old Chika Chukwu and 21-year-old Jose Garcia, both wide receivers and 21-year old linebackers Randall Laguerre and Kenneth Keen are charged with breach of peace and permitting a minor to possess alcohol.

Police say the four live at the home where the party took place last Saturday, hours after the Blue Devils (0-2) lost to Fordham, 38-31.

CCSU said in a statement Tuesday that in addition to the one-game suspension, the players also will be required to perform 10 hours of community service and complete an alcohol awareness program.

The school says it has a responsibility to educate students about being good citizens, whether they are on or off campus.
