Missouri freshman men’s basketball players Jakeenan Gant and D’Angelo Allen were charged Tuesday with a peace disturbance, according to the Boone County prosecutors’ office.
Gant, 18, a forward from Georgia, and Allen, 18, a wing from Dallas, were arrested in the early-morning hours Sept. 14 on suspicion of third-degree assault, a misdemeanor.
Peace disturbance is a Class B misdemeanor.
Boone County prosecutors believed the facts of the case best fit that charge, which includes “fighting” as an act that fits under the peace disturbance charge.
Never miss a local story.
Allen, Gant and another man were arrested but not taken to jail after an alleged altercation near Eighth and Elm Streets around 2 a.m. on Sept. 14.
Both were players were initially suspended by first-year Missouri coach Kim Anderson, but subsequently were reinstated prior to Tuesday’s Black and Gold scrimmage at Mizzou Arena.
