Aggie Football Players Indicted in Armed Robbery

A pair of Texas A&M football players accused of armed robbery were indicted Thursday by a Brazos County Grand Jury.

Yemi Babalola, 21, and Brandon Joiner, 18, are each charged with two counts of aggravated robbery. Joiner also faces felony drug charges.

They're accused of robbing a Callaway Villas apartment November 29, hitting a person and tying up two people with duct tape. Police believe the alleged armed robbery was part of a drug deal.

Babalola starred on the Bryan High School football team before earning a starting spot on the A&M offensive line.

Joiner, a Killeen native, played defensive end for the Aggies.

Both men are out of jail on bond, and have been suspended indefinitely from the Aggie team.
