Ex-Baylor football player accused of 2013 sexual assault

WACO, Texas (AP) — A former Baylor football player has been arrested after a grand jury indicted him on three second-degree felony sexual assault counts arising from a 2013 incident while he was with the Bears.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reports former tight end Tre’Von Armstead was arrested Wednesday near his hometown of Port Arthur. The McLennan County grand jury handed down the indictment last week but it remained sealed until Wednesday.

Armstead was jailed in Beaumont with bonds totaling $150,000. Jail records listed no attorney for the 22-year-old.

The indictment alleges Armstead forced a woman to perform sex acts in mid-April 2013.
