Two players from the Utah State football team are facing separate legal troubles that landed them both in court early this week.
Senior receiver Ronald Butler, 22, was arrested Sunday on suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol. He appeared in Logan City Justice Court for the first time Tuesday to answer to two misdemeanor charges. If convicted, Butler could face up to 9 months in jail.
Junior receiver Bruce Natson, 19, known around the team as "Jojo," was in court Monday for a Class A misdemeanor theft charge. The player was assigned a lawyer and is scheduled to be back in 1st District Court on Aug. 4 for a pretrial conference. Natson, who was charged in April, could face up to a year in jail if convicted.
