The Toronto FC soccer team is in hot water right now.

The team had three of its players arrested for public intoxication and were played in jail. Miguel Aceval, Luis Silva, and Nick Soolsma were arrested after a fight outside of a bar in Houston.

Hours after their arrest, they were released and allowed to re-join the team. Two of the players were in a fight outside Club Escobar.

The team is in Houston to play the Houston Dynamo on Sunday night.

“We are aware of the charges filed against Miguel Aceval, Luis Silva and Nick Soolsma in Houston,” Toronto said in a statement. “The players are presently with the team and we continue to investigate this matter. As such, the team will not provide any further comment at this time.”

“At about 2:45 (Monday) morning, at Club Escobar … there was a fight in the parking lot,” said Houston Police Department spokeswoman Jodi Silva, according to the Houston Chronicle. “And officers who were working an extra job there attempted to break it up.

“So while they’re trying to break this fight up our three suspects got belligerent with the officers and refused to leave.”
