TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Two Florida State track and field athletes have been arrested in connection with a report of gunfire within Tallahassee city limits.
Stephen Newbold, 18, is charged with discharging a firearm in public and resisting arrest without violence.
Ronnell "Josh" Mance, 21, is charged with possession of a forged driver's license and resisting arrest without violence. Mance was a member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic team and won a silver medal in the men's 4x400-meter relay.
According to the police report, Tallahassee police responded to reports of gunshots in the area of the pool at the Campus Walk Apartments on Wadsworth Street at around 3:36 a.m. Thursday.
Arresting officer Terry Mahan arrived at the scene, encountered five men and ordered them to put their hands on their heads. An officer ordered the men searched and one suspect, later identified as Newbold, fled the scene.
The four remaining suspects were searched. Mance resisted an officer during a pat down and was placed under arrest. An ID card found on Mance did not belong to him, and the date on the card had been changed.
Newbold was tracked and located by a K-9 officer and arrested for resisting an officer without violence.
A witness living at Campus Walk Apartments said she heard two gunshots. She then looked out her window and saw a man, later identified as Newbold, fire two more times in the direction of the apartment complex's pool.
Florida State athletics director Randy Spetman released a statement in response to news of the incident:
We are aware of the arrest and are working to gather all the facts. The students have been suspended from the team effective immediately. Whether they can return as student-athletes will be determined through our discipline policy and any legal proceedings.
