KNOXVILLE (WATE) - An off-duty Knoxville police officer and a UT police officer were assaulted early Friday morning outside a bar and two Vols football players are charged.
Knoxville police charged wide receiver Da'Rick Rogers, 19, a recent Vol recruit from Calhoun, Georgia, with disorderly conduct, a class C misdemeanor, and resisting arrest, a class B misdemeanor.
Rogers signed with the Vols this year after initially committing to Georgia. He's not listed on the Vols roster yet.
Freshman defensive back Darren Myles, of Atlanta, is charged with assaulting a UT police officer, resisting arrest and evading arrest.
Myles was released on a $1,000 bond and Rogers was released on a $1,000 bond.
Published reports say two other football players, Denarius Moore, 21, and Montori Hughes, 19, were questioned about the assault on the Knoxville police officer, but they haven't been charged.

Most people know VIP as VERY IMPORTANT PERSON, but a local Knoxville pundit says it really means VOLS IN PRISON.
“Da’Rick”? Just Rick wasn’t good enough?
Will dick holder investigate this?...
Tennessee is just gonna have to stop recruiting all these Amish athletes.
New regime, same problems with a bunch of classless thugs. Hopefully, Dooley will adopt a hardline stance on this sort of stuff. One strike and you’re out. We fans are getting tired of seeing UT athletes in the headlines for the wrong reasons.
The report doesn’t say if Myles was charged with a misdemeanor or a felony. $1K bail is probably too low for a felony, so my guess is they were VERY KIND and charged him with a misdemeanor. That’s incredibly nice. Usually, you punch a cop when the cop is effecting arrest, it the felony version that’s headed your way.
WTF? Ya think perhaps even his mother was trying to spell “Derrick”? LOL
Yeah, I hope so to. He is going to have to rule with an iron fist if we ever expect to have a respected program again.
da’rick? just another TCBE name. good grief.
