The two Texas Wesleyan University basketball players arrested on campus Oct. 9 now have legal representation, said Melody McDonald, public information officer for the Tarrant County District Attorney.

Darrell Andre Robertson and Malik E. Wineglass were booked into the Tarrant County Jail at 10:08 a.m Saturday Oct. 9 according to a Fort Worth Police Department incident report.

Robertson was charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a felony, and Wineglass was charged with unlawful restraint, a misdemeanor, the report said.

Robertson was released from jail on Friday after posting bond, McDonald said.

Wineglass remains in the Tarrant County Jail, according to the Jail website. His bail has been set at $5,000.

Wineglass is being represented by a court-appointed attorney, Larry Reed, McDonald said.

No court date for him has been set.

Robertson is being represented by a court-appointed attorney, Pia Rodriguez, of Arlington, McDonald said.

According to the police report, two white females, age 32 and 35, were involved in the incident.

John Veilleux, vice president for marketing and communications,  said Oct. 14 that there were two student witnesses to the incident. Both witnesses reported seeing a gun but no gun was found.

Head basketball coach Brennen Shingleton confirmed that both Wineglass and Robertson were members the Wesleyan men’s basketball team.

Both men were recruited this summer to play basketball this fall, Shingleton said.

Wineglass is one member of the Essex County Trio that was recruited this summer, Shingleton said.

“I am really excited about the addition of these three young men,” Shingleton commented on in May, 2014.  “They all bring a little something different to the upcoming team, but the common denominator between the three of them is toughness and a willingness to compete and be coached.”

    Not sure why you’d choose to use an unrelated quote from coach Shingleton that he gave on a completely unrelated topic. It paints him in a poor light. Surely you are capable of better reporting. Recall, you have a duty to be accurate in your reporting. This quote does anything but provide context to how he feels about the players given the current situation. You owe him a correction and you owe your readers better.
