04:18 PM ET 03.13 | Some drama between various athletes at the University of Texas apparently turned ugly, with wide receiver Cayleb Jones charged with aggravated assault after punching a tennis player over his relationship with player on Texas' volleyball team

Jones allegedly punched Joseph Swaysland hard enough to break his jaw, which has earned Jones a suspension from the team and a second-degree assault charge, which is a felony. Jones had reportedly threatened Swaysland and told volleyball player Katherine Bell not to talk to Swaysland, a situation which boiled over and could have Jones in a lot of trouble.

Jones has been suspended from the team indefinitely. He had two receptions last year as a reserve wide receiver.

CJ just thought that this was the first step to getting a heisman...

On a serious note, what a waste of great talent. Based on the reports I've read, I hope he enjoys McD's because that's about the best earning capacity he will have

I say kick him off the team. Zero tolerance policy.

Yep, I would say at least suspend until trial is over, and that may be a year. If acquitted, then maybe reinstatement.

That was the hardest hit hit a mooterus player dished out all year. He should get an extra orange slice for showing a little agression.

Heck no. Process him.

It should be Suddes' first command decision as director of player personnel.
