FRESNO, Calif. (AP) The Fresno County District Attorney's office has filed charges against Fresno State quarterback Zack Greenlee and a teammate arrested last month during a house party near the campus.

The Fresno Bee reports (http://bit.ly/1NlieXJ) that Zack Greenlee, the 20-year-old starting quarterback for Fresno State's football team, was charged Tuesday with possession of alcohol by a minor, a misdemeanor.

Brandon Hughes, a 21-year-old linebacker on the team, was charged with obstructing a police officer.

The charges stem from arrests made while breaking up a loud house party on Sept. 20.

Fresno police Chief Jerry Dyer said officers saw Greenlee drinking from a beer bottle. He later refused to hand over a beverage in a red cup. He did not take a breathalyzer test.

Dyer says Hughes, who was not drinking, was with Greenlee during his arrest and refused to leave when ordered to do so by officers.
