WSU receiver Marks arrested at Pullman bar

PULLMAN – Washington State wide receiver Gabe Marks was arrested at Stubblefields bar early Saturday morning and cited for four misdemeanors: fourth-degree assault, second-degree criminal trespass, being a minor intoxicated in public and frequenting a tavern.

According to Sgt. Dan Dornes of the Pullman Police Department, officers responded to a call saying that someone had assaulted a Stubblefields employee shortly after 2 a.m. on Saturday. Dornes said when they arrived, Marks, 19, was heavily intoxicated and was being detained by “a number of employees.”

“He was in a dispute with another patron and they were asking him to leave the premises, and they were escorting him to leave the premises,” Dornes said. “During that time he punched one of the employees, which was a 34-year-old male and so they held him there.”

A spokesperson for the WSU football team said they do not comment on internal matters.

Marks spent no time in jail and will be issued a court date.

On Sunday, Marks took to Twitter to apologize.

“I am sorry to everyone who believed in me,” he wrote. “My actions are my own and I have to live with it. Can’t change the past. Can only look forward.”
