The three Toronto FC players who were arrested for public intoxication Sunday morning in Houston will not be available to play Wednesday against the Dynamo as the investigation into the incident continues.

Defender Miguel Aceval and midfielders Nick Soolsma and Luis Silva were not with the club on Tuesday as the team prepared for its upcoming game, head coach Paul Mariner told Toronto FC TV on Tuesday.

“We’re working very closely with the league office and the players union,” Mariner said. ”It’s an ongoing situation. We’re listening to what they say and until the investigation is complete that’s all I can tell you.

“They are not presently with the club and because the investigation is going on they won’t be available for Wednesday and we’ll see what transpires over the next few days.”

The three were arrested after police were called to Club Escobar in Houston's Midtown neighborhood because of a disturbance outside the club.

A court date has been set for Aug. 2.
