Ole Miss’ Ken Webster, Detric Bing-Dukes suspended one game following arrests
The arrests of two Ole Miss football players will cost them one game during the upcoming season.
Cornerback Kendarius Webster and linebacker Detric Bing-Dukes will each be suspended for the Sept. 2 opener against South Alabama, Ole Miss interim coach Matt Luke said Wednesday. Webster and Bing-Dukes were arrested on shoplifting charges Tuesday night.
The players were booked into the Lafayette County Detention Center at 6:55 p.m. and released on bond at 8 p.m. They’re scheduled to appear in municipal courtSept. 16.
The EAGLE has filed a public records request for the police report, but Luke said he decided on a one-game suspension after gathering facts on the incident and talking to the players and their families.
“There is a price you have to pay,” Luke said. “We still love them. They’re both great kids, but when you do make a mistake, there are going to be consequences. They know there is going to be accountability.”
Luke said Webster and Bing-Dukes will also be required to do some community service, but both players will still be allowed to practice when the Rebels open training camp Wednesday night.
