Pago 11--The Robesonbn, Liimliertun, N. C., Wednesday, December 8, 1971 THE ROBESONIAN POKTS Berry, Marshall Back In Practice Pirates Trim Rockingham 67-63 ATLANTA (AP) - Atlanta Falcons quarterback Bob Berry and defensive end Randy Marshall were back in practice Tuesday and apparently will not be suspended following their arests in a police raid Monday night. Both players suited up and worked out during the short practice session after being released on bond early Tuesday morning. Cobb County police acting on a tip, raided Marshall's aoart- ment Monday night. "A reliable confidential source" had said that a ''pot party" was in progress at the apartment, police said. Berry was charged with obstructing officers and Marshall with running a disorderly house. A hearing was set for Dec. 23 in state court in Marietta. Angela Carol Nichols of Marietta was charged with possess- ing marijuana, some unidentified pills, and a device suspected of being used to smoke marijuana. . Marshall was released on $1,000 bond and Berry on a $500 bond, arranged for by Falcon Coach Norm Van Brocklin. Club owner Rankin Smith issued a statement Tuesday saying: "The incident involving Atlanta Falcon players Bob Berry and Randy Marshall on Monday evening was an unfortunate one. Cobb County authorities inform us that no Falcon players were involved in the use or possession of drugs. Both Berry and Marshall have retained counsel and we understand that counsel will request an early hearing. . . "Falcon club policy is that we do not make public announcements regarding internal disciplinary action."
