Cleveland and Wells were both arrested early Monday morning and were charged with mischief for damaging property worth $1,000 or more (third-degree felony) and shooting a missile inside an occupied dwelling (second-degree felony).
Per the arrest report, the two caused more than $1,000 in damages at their resident housing at Florida from firing BB guns.
Cleveland was the No. 2 wide receiver in the country for the class of 2016 while Wells was a 3-star prospect. Two freshman at Georgia were also arrested in April for damage caused by BB guns.
