AUBURN, Ala. — Three Auburn softball players were arrested early Thursday morning for marijuana possession, a day ahead of the No. 7 Tigers’ SEC road series at South Carolina.
Shortstop Haley Fagan, starting pitcher Makayla Martin and reserve outfielder Brittany Maresette were arrested on second-degree charges of possession of marijuana and drug paraphernalia. The news was first reported by WRBL-TV.
A spokesman for Auburn athletics said all three players are suspended indefinitely. They did not make the team’s trip Thursday to South Carolina.
Arrest reports show Auburn police responded to a call and arrested the three players at 12:47 a.m. Thursday on East Samford Avenue in Auburn. The Tigers defeated Kennesaw State, 7-3, in a home game Wednesday night.
Fagan, a senior, has started all 44 games at shortstop for the Tigers this season. Martin, a sophomore, is Auburn’s No. 2 starting pitcher with a 16-5 record and a 2.05 ERA. The freshman Maresette has appeared in 17 games this season.
