(USA Today) – University of Miami linebackers Alex Figueroa and Jawand Blue were dismissed from the team on Tuesday in response to sexual battery charges.

According to a Coral Gables, Fla., Police report, Figueroa and Blue brought a 17-year old female back to a dorm room early on July 5 after the victim was given a “substance” that left her “mentally or physically incapacitated.”

Each is charged with sexual battery on a physically helpless victim, and Figueroa is also charged with possessing a stolen or forged driver’s license.

After Figueroa and Blue came into the police station on Tuesday, they admitted to performing sexual acts on the victim without her consent, according to the police report.
