AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas sophomore wide receiver Cayleb Jones was charged Tuesday with felony aggravated assault of a Longhorns tennis player, with police saying he fractured the victim’s jaw with a punch outside a downtown nightclub. A warrant was issued for Jones’ arrest and an Austin police spokeswoman said Jones was expected to turn himself in later Tuesday. Coach Mack Brown suspended Jones until the case is resolved.
According to police, Jones punched Joseph Swaysland after Jones confronted Swaysland and Texas volleyball player Katherine Bell on Feb. 22. She told police she had been in a relationship with Jones that ended badly and that Jones had previously threatened to fight Swaysland. Bell said Jones told her he didn’t want to see her speaking to any men, notably the victim, according to a police affidavit in support of the arrest warrant. The charge is a second degree felony with a punishment range up to 20 years in prison.
Is this tennis player serious? Bro this is Texas. Ever watched TV? Movies? Read a book? Friday Night Lights ring any bells? Have you lived your life at all? This is football country son. Didn’t even know they had tennis teams in Texas or even knew what tennis was. Surprised it’s not completely banned for being too gay for God or something. So the fact that as a tennis player you think you can look at a Texas football player’s girlfriend let alone talk to her or possibly date her is astoundingly out of touch. That’s going to end with a fractured jaw literally every single time you leave the house.
