Waters and Rogers are charged with simple assault and battery, while Sarvis is charged with malicious damage to personal property. Each of the three men has been released on $1,000 bond, and no trial date has been set for any of the defendants.
The arrest is unsettling news for the Chargers, as the team made character-conscious roster purges this offseason. Veterans Terrence Kiel and Ryan Krause were both released following legal transgressions during the season.
However, it is not believed that this arrest will tarnish Waters' reputation, given the unusual progression of events. Waters has impressed the team throughout Mini Camps and offseason coaching sessions with his attitude and work ethic.
Waters is still rehabbing from an ACL injury that cost him his senior season at Clemson. It is that injury that allowed the Chargers to steal the powerful inside linebacker in round three, as he likely would have been a first-round pick had he stayed healthy.
