After a fast start to the season, N.C. State’s men’s soccer team has been knocked back on the field and off.
Wolfpack coach Kelly Findley has dismissed four players from the team after their involvement in a fight outside a bar in downtown Raleigh earlier this month.
Forward Nader Jaibat, defender Michael Nelson, forward Monbo Bokar and midfielder Jonathan Ray were arrested after the team’s 1-0 home loss to Duke on Oct. 5, according to Wake County court documents.
Findley could not be reached for comment on Wednesday. A school spokesperson confirmed the dismissals on Wednesday.
Bokar, a sophomore from Durham, is second on the team in goals (five) and scoring (10 points). Ray, a sophomore from Durham and Bokar’s high school teammate at Jordan, had two goals and eight points in 12 games.
Nelson, a freshman from Austin, Texas, was one of the team’s top recruits this year. Jaibat, a junior from Cary, had played in eight games.
All four former players were charged with resisting a public officer, a misdemeanor, according to Wake County court documents. Jaibat and Bokar received misdemeanor underage drinking charges. Ray was also charged with disorderly conduct and Nelson was charged with simple affray, both charges are misdemeanors.
The four are due in Wake County court in November.
