Travon Blanchard, who is currently suspended from the Baylor University football team, was arrested Tuesday evening on previous assault allegations by his ex-girlfriend, according to KXXV. A waarent had been issued for his arrest by the Fort Bend County District Attorney’s office for a misdemeanor charge. Baylor Police took him into custody. The alleged incident happened at a Houston-area restaurant.

His attorney Michelle Tuegel wrote in an email, “The woman alleged that Travon snatched keys out of her hand which she claimed cut her pinky finger in the process. We look forward to representing Travon and bringing out the truth in court.” Baylor University’s Director of Athletics Communications David Kaye released a statement to KXXV saying:

“Travon Blanchard was suspended from all team activities immediately after learning of allegations made against him in February. That status has not changed and he has had no involvement with the program since that time. The university is aware of the arrest made today in connection with the previous allegations against Blanchard and will monitor the developments of this charge for any additional decision regarding his affiliation as a student-athlete."
