NEWPORT, AR - A 22-year-old Newport man charged with the recent shooting of a Newport teenager is not a former Arkansas State football player.

Last night on K8 News Nightbeat, we told you about yesterday's court appearance of Anthony Antonio Warren of Newport, who is charged with first degree battery, two counts of aggravated assault and committing a terroristic act for the shooting of 15-year-old Justin Honey.

Warren generally uses his middle name of Antonio, and therefore shares the name with recently graduated ASU football standount Antonio Warren of Wynne, but the two are not the same people.
