Offensive lineman Jack Mewhort was also arrested with Stoneburner, along with a third man - it is believed they were urinating between buildings and when police approached them, they ran:

Police told 10TV News that two officers saw the three men who they believed were urinating between buildings. The officers attempted to talk with them but they ran away.

Two of them were captured while they were crouched in between vehicles in a parking area used for the nearby Memorial Tournament, police said. The third person was found hiding in nearby woods after officers threatened to use a police dog.

All three were released about a little more than an hour later after posting $2,000 bond, according to the Delaware County Sheriff's Office.
