An Alabama State University football player has been suspended after video shows him punching a security guard during Saturday’s road game against Florida A&M. Without naming the player, ASU released a statement saying, “We are aware of the incident that occurred last night after our game against Florida A&M University in Tallahassee, involving a football student and Alabama State University athletes.” We do not condone the actions of the student-athlete, nor do the actions meet the expectations of the athletic department and our university. There is zero tolerance for this type of behavior. The student-athlete has been suspended from the program indefinitely, effective immediately.”
Video circulating on social media shows an ASU player being taunted by students in the Florida A&M stands. A security guard steps between the player and students and is then punched by the ASU player.
