Boulder Police Raise Concerns Over Airsoft Gun Incident Involving 8 CU Buffs

Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Ten Boulder police officers were called to respond when two cars containing eight University of Colorado football players were pulled over early Saturday morning after witnesses thought the AirSoft gun they were pointing at each other was a real gun, according to police. 

According to a police report, Jered Bell, 20, Keenan Canty, 19, Jermane Clark, 21, Joshua Moten, 20, Jeffery Thomas, 18, DaVaughn Thornton, 21, Paul Vigo, 22, and Derrick Webb, 20 -- all current CU football players -- were in the two cars. Paul Vigo's brother Moses Vigo, 18, was also in one of the cars, but is not a CU football player.

No arrests were made nor any tickets given, but Boulder police, according to the report, planned to raise concerns with CU's Athletic Department about the athletes and the "impact their behavior had on police services throughout the entire city at the time of the incident."

CU athletics officials confirmed the department has been contacted by Boulder police about the incident.
