MLS reviewing incident involving Joseph, Alston

NEW YORK – Major League Soccer is reviewing an incident involving New England’s Shalrie Joseph and Kevin Alston last weekend in Orlando, Fla.

Joseph and Alston were sent home from the Revs’ preseason training trip on Monday for disciplinary reasons. The Boston Globe reported on Thursday that Joseph was arrested by Orlando police for trespassing at the team hotel.

“We are aware of the situation involving Shalrie Joseph and Kevin Alston and we understand the New England Revolution are dealing with it,” MLS executive vice president of player relations and competition Todd Durbin told MLSsoccer.com in a statement. “The league will determine if any action is necessary.”

The Revolution have yet to disclose when Joseph or Alston will rejoin the team, which returned to New England on Thursday after 11 days in Florida.
