OSU football players out of jail, suspended from team

CORVALLIS, Ore. - Three Oregon State football players arrested early Saturday morning on assault and disorderly conduct charges got out of jail Monday after facing arraignment.

Corvallis police arrested Rudolph Fifita, Tyler Rosa and Dyllon Mafi.

The three are suspended indefinitely, according to head coach Mike Riley. That makes their status for the Alamo Bowl uncertain.

The three were released from jail Monday on conditions they not consume alcohol and they avoid contact with the victim.

The judge said the three may leave the state while the charges progress through the legal system.

According to Corvallis Police Lt. Cord Wood, the three players were at the Impulse Bar and Grill at 1425 NW Monroe when they got into an argument with a man and assaulted him.

A second person got involved in the fight and was also assaulted, Wood said.

  • Mafi, a junior linebacker, was booked on charges of assault (3rd degree), disorderly conduct and misrepresentation of age by a minor
  • Rosa, a junior defensive tackle, was booked on charges of assault (3rd degree) and disorderly conduct (2nd degree)
  • Fifita, a senior defensive end, was booked on charges of assault (3rd degree) and disorderly conduct (2nd degree). He is being held on $157,500 bail

The Beavers are preparing to face Texas in the Alamo Bowl on Dec. 29.
