Elston, Stringfellow remain in custody

By John Davis, Oxford Citizen

Two Ole Miss football players remain in the custody of sheriff deputies at the Lafayette County Detention Center Thursday afternoon.

Safety Trae Elston and wide receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow were arrested by two separate members of the Oxford Police Department early Thursday morning. The charges, for both, were listed in the jail docket as disorderly conduct and resisting arrest for Elston.

Both were booked into the LCDC at 12:10 Thursday morning. Both were still there 12 hours later, waiting to be released or have a person representing a bonding agency secure their release.

Stringfellow came to Ole Miss from the University of Washington. He sat out this past season per NCAA transfer rules. Stringfellow is a native of California. Elston has played three seasons for the Rebels. He is a native of Oxford, Ala.

    What can you say? They’ve embarrassed themselves and Ole Miss. Kids will be kids but you don’t mess with the police. It’s strictly yes sir-no sir when the police get involved. Maybe–at least I hope–Coach Freeze can impress upon these two the difference between being a student and a high profiled athlete.
