IU players Farrell, Robinson accused of underage drinking

Statement as issued Friday by Indiana State Excise Police:

Bloomington, Ind. (April 25th) – Indiana State Excise Police officers arrested two members of the Indiana University Men’s Basketball team early this morning. Kevin D. Farrell, 20, of Indianapolis, and Stanford B. Robinson, 18, of Landover, Maryland, were each preliminarily charged with Minor Consumption of an Alcoholic Beverage and Possession of a False Identification.

At approximately 1:00 am, Farrell and Robinson allegedly attempted to enter Kilroy’s Sports Bar located at 319 North Walnut using false identifications. Indiana State Excise Police officers working inside the premise recognized the identifications to be false at that time.

Farrell and Robinson were each issued summonses and released. The two will be required to appear in Monroe County Court on Sunday, April 27th at 8:30 am.

As the enforcement division of the Indiana Alcohol and Tobacco Commission, the primary mission of the Indiana State Excise Police is to promote public safety by enforcing Indiana’s Alcoholic Beverage Code. While excise officers have the authority to enforce any state law, they focus primarily on alcohol, tobacco and related laws.

All criminal defendants are to be presumed innocent until, and unless, proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
