Vols bar brawl investigation to last several days

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee players involved in a bar brawl must wait another at least another day before learning if they will be charged in the incident that left an off-duty Knoxville police officer seriously injured.

Knoxville Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk said Monday there are witnesses of the early Friday morning fight who still need to be interviewed.

DeBusk says more charges will be issued at the conclusion of the investigation.

No one has been charged with the assault of officer Robert Capouellez (CAP'-oh-lay), who was left unconscious after trying to break up the fight. He was in stable condition at a Knoxville hospital Monday.

Incoming freshman wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers and sophomore defensive back Darren Myles Jr. have been charged.
