A roommate of the defendant previously filed for a restraining order against LeBlanc and Alexander on Nov. 5. The players were also being investigated by DC Metro police within the last month, per USA Today.

LeBlanc and Alexander did not appear for their court date, USA Today reports. Another hearing for the second restraining order is scheduled for Dec. 9.

"Georgetown takes student conduct issues very seriously and ensures that they are investigated thoroughly," Georgetown University said in a statement. "While we are not able to comment on specific cases, we have processes for investigating and adjudicating alleged violations for our student code that are fair to both parties. We encourage any student who has a concern to be in contact with the Georgetown University Police Department or the Office of Student Conduct."

On Monday, Georgetown coach Patrick Ewing said in a statement that LeBlanc would not play for the Hoyas for the remainder of the season. The fate of the other two players has yet to be determined.
