Four University of Kentucky football players who were caught on video surveillance and later disciplined by Coach Mark Stoops had not been charged as of Wednesday afternoon, according to the prosecutor.
Fayette County Attorney Larry Roberts said his office has processed charges against all four freshmen players — Dorian Baker, Drew Barker, Tymere Dubose and Stanley Williams — but they had not been served. Once the players are served the charges will be filed in Fayette District Court, and an arraignment will be scheduled.
Roberts said the players would be charged with second-degree disorderly conduct, a class B misdemeanor, covering such things as fighting, making loud noises or creating a hazardous condition. It is punishable by up to 90 days in jail.
On Wednesday, university officials released to the Herald-Leader via an open records request a police report and surveillance video from Sunday night.

The university omitted some of the requested information — including recordings or transcripts of the 911 call — because "they are considered intelligence and investigative records maintained by the criminal justice agencies and may be withheld from inspection if the prosecution is not complete."
Surveillance video was released, the university said, because it "was previously released by the police in an attempt to identify persons on the video."
The police report was largely blank. The report says the incident occurred from 9:25 p.m. to 9:29 p.m. and it was reported to police immediately afterward.
The video clips mirror frame grabs released Monday when UK police were searching for "persons of interest." The video taken from surveillance cameras from around campus shows small groups of people walking and briefly gathering. But the video does not show anyone using or holding an airsoft pistol or BB gun.
The incident sent UK's campus into a frenzy with police issuing a campus alert, and locking down a portion of the campus. Campus police have said the men were playing with three airsoft pistols that were later found. University officials have said guns of any type, including air pistols, are prohibited on campus.
Stoops said the four players have been suspended for Saturday's game against South Carolina and they have been placed on the scout team.
