FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — TCU defensive end Devonte Fields has been “separated” from the university pending an investigation into an alleged assault against his former girlfriend.
Police are trying to determine whether Fields pointed a gun at his former girlfriend and punched her in the head.
The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that 20-year-old Haley Brown’s right check was swollen and she had a cut under her eye when officers arrived at a West Fort Worth home early Sunday.
Police on Tuesday said that no charges have been filed and Fields, the Big 12’s preseason defensive player of the year, has not been arrested. The case is being investigated as an Assault Bodily Injury-Family Violence.
Brown told police that she and Fields dated for two years and had broken up June 1. Brown said she didn’t want to press charges but officers told her a report and family violence packet must be completed.
TCU released the following statement acknowledging the investigation.
“Devonte Fields has been separated from the University pending results of an investigation into the allegations against him. The University does not tolerate harassment or misconduct by a student. The university discipline process will be implemented which may result in disciplinary action from the University above and beyond any legal consequences the student might face.”
