Western Kentucky University football players are under investigation for allegedly rolling to the Pike fraternity house and beating up two people in a violent masked attack.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ that at least 4 members of the team, whose names have not been released, are involved in the investigation over a March 5 incident that left at least one of the fraternity members hospitalized.

According to the police report, an alumni of the Pike house was called to the scene by an active brother who told him that multiple football players were outside asking for a fight.

The alumni, who had to go to the emergency room for his injury, said he was asking the football players to leave when one of them tackled him into a fence and began to assault him. A second Pike member says he tried to break up the fight and was also assaulted.

Furthermore, police say victims allege several of the football players were carrying guns, with at least one suspect also carrying a box cutter.

A spokesperson for the Western Kentucky University football team told TMZ:

“We are aware of the allegations involving a few members of our football team. We are cooperating fully with the authorities. However, at this time, we have not received a police report and cannot provide further comment.”
