Vanderbilt Football Suspends 3 Players Involved In Botched Cell Phone Recovery


Three members of the Vanderbilt football team have been suspended indefinitely after a botched attempt to recover a stolen cell phone.

Commodores head coach Derek Mason announced wide receiver Donaven Tennyson, cornerback Frank Coppet and safety Tae Daley have all been suspended, according to TMZ Sports.

Tennyson got the help of Coppet and Daley in an attempt to get back his stolen phone. The trio pulled pellet guns on the thieves, but were met with actual guns and two players — Coppey and Daley — were shot.

Daley was shot in the leg, while Coppet was hit in both arms from a shotgun blast.

No arrests were made.
