COLUMBUS — Three Mississippi State football players were arrested and taken into police custody July 8 for their role in two separate altercations in a Columbus nightclub. The men who bore the brunt of the attack — brothers Elency and Lester Erby of Columbus — were not charged. Yet Elency Erby insists he swung first, because he figured a group of MSU football players might start hitting him.
