4 Rice football players arrested in separate cases

Four Rice University football players are free on bond after

their arrests by campus police in separate cases this week.

Online records show defensive end Cody Bauer and offensive

lineman Cade Shaw were arrested Saturday and charged with felony

firearms possession in a prohibited place – their on-campus

apartments. Both are free on $5,000 bond.

Cornerbacks Kevin Gaddis and Phillip Gaines were arrested Monday

on misdemeanor marijuana possession charges. Gaddis also is charged

with misdemeanor theft. He’s free on $1,000 bond, while Gaines

posted $500 bond for his release.

Online records show no attorneys for the four, and school

spokesman B.J. Almond tells the Houston Chronicle that Rice is

providing no other information because the university is private.

Rice athletic director Rick Greenspan said he was

investigating.
