OMAHA (KPTM) - Two UNO hockey players have been kicked off the team accused of disorderly conduct and using racial slurs.
The athletic department released a statement Friday confirming the dismissals. It comes two weeks after an incident in Downtown Omaha where a witness told police she heard the athletes yelling at a group of African-Americans shouting profanities. A police report also indicates one of the players fell and hit his head during the episode.
The university says Preston Hodge and Matt White have also lost their scholarships in addition to being ousted because of the accusations. Another player, Alex Simonson, has been suspended as an athletic department investigation continues.
