From KMTR-TV in Oregon:

"Three University of Oregon basketball players have been cited for allegedly shooting pellet guns at birds-- including ducks-- in Alton Baker Park. Michael Dunigan, Teondre Williams and Josh Crittle were cited Monday night for discharging pellet guns and hunting in City of Eugene parks. It's a 155 dollar fine. Eugene police say they received a report of three men shooting in the park just after 11 p.m. Monday night. Police tell us they found two pellet guns and recovered another from the pond."

According to the Register-Guard, Dunigan, Williams and Crittle were even arrested at gunpoint.

"As Crittle and two others -- identified by police as Michael R. Dunigan and Teondre Javon Williams, both 19 -- began to walk away from the pond, an officer approached the men and detained them at gunpoint"

Dunigan, formerly of Farragut, was a two-time All-Public League selection and a member of the 2008 Sun-Times All-Area team. Crittle played at Hales Franciscan with Matt Humphrey, a former All-Area selection who is also on the Ducks.

Dunigan, Crittle and Humphrey are all freshmen.
