Louisville Football Players Suspended For WVU

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville wide receivers Chris Vaughn and Scott Long were suspended Thursday for at least one game after being arrested for shooting a woman with a paint ball gun.

Coach Bobby Petrino suspended the players for the Nov. 2 game against No. 4 West Virginia while the matter is investigated.

Vaughn and Long were charged with second-degree assault for shooting the woman early Sunday when she came out of the Haunted Hotel, a seasonal haunted house attraction near the university's campus. Long also was charged with not carrying a driver's license.

Vaughn, a sophomore transfer from Notre Dame, has four receptions for 54 yards this season. Long has no receptions in six games.
