MISSOULA - One of the two University of Montana Griz basketball players who was allegedly involved in a weekend fight in downtown Missoula, appeared in court Monday afternoon to face the charges against him.
Keron DeShields is being charged with disorderly conduct and failure to disperse, because he wouldn't leave when the officers told him to do so. Officers ended up pepper spraying him because he didn't listen.
Missoula Police say officers had to tase Will Cherry because he was resisting arrest.
Police responded to the 100-block of Front Street at 2 o'clock Saturday morning for a report of a fight.
Investigators haven't released the details about what happened in that fight, but they say a large crowd formed and officers had to pepper spray the people who wouldn't leave.
DeShields posted bail over the weekend and he's now out on special court conditions.
"I think Mr. (David) Paoli you understand where I'm going. Just so he stays away from that Front Street area where Stockman's or any of the other bars are at," said Missoula Municipal Court Judge Geoff Mahar.
Will Cherry, who just completed his basketball career at UM, had his case continued until next week.
Cherry is charged with resisting arrest and disorderly conduct and Jason Snyder of Missoula is also facing a disorderly conduct charge.
