Marshall football players plead innocent to charges



The Associated Press

HUNTINGTON, W.Va. - Marshall quarterback Stan Hill and offensive lineman Jarrett Baisden pleaded innocent Monday to misdemeanor charges stemming from a disturbance at a fast-food restaurant.

Huntington police arrested Hill and Baisden in the early morning hours on Feb. 27 at an establishment near Marshall's campus after responding to a disturbance.

Hill, a sophomore from Tupelo, Miss., was charged with public intoxication. Baisden, a freshman from Huntington, was charged with underage drinking.

Baisden, 20, will face a trial before a Cabell County magistrate April 10.

Hill, 21, is also accused of fleeing police in October 2002 after being spotted driving recklessly. He was charged with resisting arrest, second-offense driving on a suspended license, reckless driving and failure to obey a red light.

He will be tried before a Cabell County magistrate for both his October and February charges. No dates have been set.

Replacing injured senior Byron Leftwich in a game against Miami of Ohio, Hill made his first start in November. He threw four touchdowns and scored on a 1-yard run in the final seconds to give Marshall a 36-34 victory.
