Mocs' McMillan back with team after recent gun arrest
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -- Chattanooga Mocs defensive end Vantrell McMillan, who was suspended indefinitely by Head Coach Russ Huesman after McMillan's September arrest for public intoxication and gun possession, is now back with the team and is expected to play Saturday's home game against Furman.
UTC Associate Athletic Director Jay Blackman confirming McMillan's reinstatement to the team Tuesday afternoon, saying McMillan returned to Mocs' football practices late last week.
McMillan, a 21 year old junior defensive end from Albany, Georgia, was arrested September 20th, hours after Chattanooga's 31-21 road win over Samford.
Chattanooga Police say they encountered McMillan early Sunday morning while answering a noise complaint call to a Chamberlain Avenue address.
Responding officers say they found McMillan with an alcoholic beverage and when they went to arrest him, McMillan had a loaded .40 caliber gun in his possession.
McMillan was arrested on singular counts of disorderly conduct, public intoxication and possessing a firearm while under the influence.
The current disposition of McMillan's case is unclear, we're awaiting to hear more from UTC officials.
