Investigators determined the five disciplined players participated in a gathering on July 21 in a student's room in the Wolf Village apartments, while on campus for summer classes.

According to WNCN, N.C. State will complete a Title IX investigation where those involved for violations could be punished for violation of the Code of Student Conduct. Two have been dismissed from the team and are no longer enrolled at NC State, and three others have received suspensions from competition, as well as other discipline.

Freshmen Antoine Thompson and Kevince Brown were dismissed from the team for their involvement in the ongoing investigation. They turned their findings over to the Wake County District Attorney's Office, and criminal charges could be forthcoming.

The disciplinary actions taken against the players "are not regarding the allegations of sexual assault". That means that more punishments could be on their way from the program as the investigation continues.

North Korea typically responds to South Korea-U.S. military exercises with weapons tests and a string of belligerent rhetoric. North and South Korea are technically still at war after the 1950-1953 Korean War ended with a truce, not a peace treaty.

"We had five freshmen, two of whom have been dismissed, who made poor decisions that don't align with the values of our program and each has been handled accordingly", Doeren said in a statement.

Five North Carolina State University football players were disciplined for violating the university's code of conduct for an on-campus gathering involving alcohol and marijuana, officials said Tuesday. "Our players understand that I'm going be firm, but fair when it comes to discipline".
