Published: Monday, July 6 2015 10:58 p.m. MDT

A pair of YouTube videos allegedly depict the incident that led to BYU football players Joe Sampson and Zac Stout being suspended from the Cougar football team and withdrawing from school.

The videos, uploaded to YouTube by user "kyle gashler" on Friday, show a fight that broke out at Provo restaurant Rancherito's early on the morning of Nov. 1.

Individuals are not identified in the video and the circumstances precipitating the altercation are unclear. The time and location, however, fit the police report released Friday.

The police statement said that possible charges would not be filed until after the investigation is concluded.

BYU coach Bronco Mendenhall announced Thursday that both Sampson and Stout had been suspended for a violation of team rules and would be withdrawing from the university.
