Minot, ND (WDAY TV) - Minot State University officials say a football player accused of beating up two police officers has been kicked off the team.

Jesse Ili made his first court appearance today on six charges, including attempted murder and simple assault on an officer.

Ili allegedly knocked one officer unconscious and left another with minor injuries Friday after police responded to a report of suspected drug use in a parked vehicle.

Four other team members were arrested on suspicion of marijuana possession and ingesting a controlled substance. They are suspended indefinitely.
