Three Pittsburgh Panthers football players suspended after being arrested for drug paraphernalia

Pitt-Players-Charged

Three members of the Pittsburgh Panthers football team were arrested late Thursday night for use or possession of drug paraphernalia.

As if that alone wasn't enough, the three players have since been suspended from the program indefinitely. These players include linebacker Eric Williams, tight end Andrew Carswell, and defensive lineman Khaynin Mosley-Smith.

From CBS Pittsburgh:
Police, undercover officers, and SWAT members were all called to the home in the 3300 block of Juliet Street about 10:30 p.m. Thursday night. 
As part of an ongoing investigation, narcotics detectives say they bought drugs from, and arrested 22-year-old Darnell Reed-Young. 
Detectives say they seized 20-bags of heroin, a marijuana bong, and a copper grinder. 
SWAT officers were then called in to break the door down, to arrest three other men.
Pittsburgh head coach Paul Chryst issued the following statement on the matter:
“We have strict and clear standards regarding these types of behaviors,” Chryst said. “What has occurred with these three young men does not represent the standards of our program or university.”
The 20-year-old Williams recorded 52 tackles for the Panthers in 2012, while the 21-year-old Carswell grabbed 13 passes. Mosley-Smith, 21, appeared in all 13 games for Pitt as a reserve.
