Three University of Akron football players have been suspended after being charged with felonies related to a near brawl outside a McDonald’s after a deputy and a student were injured. Running back Bryan Green, safety Johnny Robinson and cornerback Donte Williams were arrested Monday by Summit County sheriff’s deputies. Nine others are also charged. Green, 19, of Southfield, Mich., is charged with aggravated riot. Robinson, 21, of Cleveland, is charged with aggravated menacing and aggravated riot. Williams, 21, of Akron, is accused of fleeing the scene and is charged with obstructing, resisting arrest and aggravated riot. The aggravated riot charges are fourth-degree felonies. According to UA officials, the three are suspended from all athletic activities until their cases are decided in the courts. They concurrently will face a university judicial process. A message left for coach Terry Bowden was not immediately returned. The incident stems from a large-scale dispute about 3 a.m. April 13 between two groups outside the McDonald’s restaurant at 246 E. Exchange St. near the UA campus. Two deputies are assigned off-duty to provide security for the restaurant. Sheriff’s Inspector Bill Holland said he could not discuss specific facts surrounding the incident.
