Police issued arrest warrants Monday for four University of Colorado football players accused of giving alcohol and marijuana to minors at a party where a woman alleged she was gang raped.

Boulder County District Attorney Mary Keenan announced last week she wouldn't pursue rape charges because of problems with acquaintance-rape cases. But police said at the time other charges likely would be filed.

The four student-athletes face the felony charge of contributing to the delinquency of a minor for allegedly providing the drugs and alcohol to high school football recruits visiting the school. They had until 5 p.m. Tuesday to turn themselves in to Boulder or campus police.

District Judge Carol Glowinsky issued the arrest warrants and mandated a $2,500 bond for each.

The four players, all 20 years old, are: Marques Harris, sophomore, defensive end; Corey Alexander, sophomore, wide receiver; Ron Monteihl II, redshirt freshman; and Joseph Allen Mackey Jr., freshman, cornerback.

``We feel it is inappropriate to comment at this time because this now will enter a process where we have to see what the judicial outcome is,'' the athletic department said in a statement. ``Any punishment that Coach (Gary) Barnett has already meted out is private to the student-athlete personal records.''

Police said more charges against others are likely.

The charges stem from a Dec. 7 off-campus party. University officials have said it was not a sanctioned recruiting event and that the women had no affiliation with the athletic department.

CU-Boulder Chancellor Richard L. Byyny said last week that he ordered the athletic department to increase supervision of athletes, including visiting recruits. Curfews will be imposed and enforced and an education program emphasizing the consequences of misbehavior will be created
