More details on Marks’ arrest

Yesterday we reported that WSU wide receiver Gabe Marks had been arrested and cited with four misdemeanors: 4th degree assault, 2nd degree criminal trespass, being a minor intoxicated in public and frequenting a tavern as a minor. Today Sgt. Dan Dornes of the Pullman Police Department provided more details on the arrest.


Dornes said that Marks, a 19-year-old, was being detained by "a number of employees" outside Stubblefields bar in Pullman at 2:12 a.m. Saturday when Pullman Police Department officers responded to a call that an employee had been assaulted.

“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.”

According to Dornes, Marks was “heavily intoxicated.” He was arrested for the assault as well as trespassing and it was discovered that he was a minor, leading to additional charges.

Dornes said that Marks did not spend any time in jail because all four charges are misdemeanors. Instead he was issued a formal citation. He has not yet received a court date.

Marks took to Twitter to apologize to his fans.
