Three Ball State football players had finished eating at a Muncie, Indiana restaurant when one of the people at their table allegedly tipped the server using dollar bills smeared with feces.
The Cardinals' defensive back Darius Conaway, defensive lineman Kennan Noel and linebacker Nicholas Isaacs were with the party of six — including the 17-year-old who reportedly left the disgusting gratuity inside the restaurant about noon on Sunday, the Ball State Daily reported.
The 17-year old — who was with the group of players — reportedly went to the bathroom after they received their bill and left the sh**ty tip, said the student newspaper:
After returning to the table he put the money into the black folder, according to police who sourced a security video of the event.
The group’s waitress told police she saw the suspect laughing when she picked up the check and smelled a “foul odor.” She said two of the bills were covered in a brown substance that she later realized was fecal matter.
The 17-year old minor was still there when police arrived. He was charged with battery with bodily waste and released to a guardian. The players were not charged with anything.
One of the football players involved in the incident, Conaway, had already been suspended for two games after being charged with driving under the influence and drinking underage, according to the report.
Staff for the university's athletic department said they do not think the players were directly involved in the prank, reported WRTV.
