CEDAR CITY, Utah (AP) -- Two Southern Utah University football players and one former player have been arrested by Cedar City police following a weekend fight at a party in which one person was severely beaten.

Players LaVar M. Porter of Las Vegas and LaRue Martin Joseph Burley of Cedar City and former player Isiah Quinton Mack, 23, Cedar City, were arrested Tuesday for investigation of assault.

S-U-U sports information director Neil Gardner says no action will be taken by the school pending the outcome of the case.

Mack was released yesterday on six-thousand, 250 dollars bail. Porter's bail was set at 16 thousand dollars and Burley's bail was set at 15 thousand dollars .

Porter, who played in seven games for the Thunderbirds last season, entered the team's fall camp as the projected starter at middle linebacker.

Burley is a transfer from Mesa Community College in Arizona, where he caught 33 passes for 448 yards last season.
