Former Baylor Tight End Tre’Von Armstead Arrested on Sexual Assault Allegations From 2013 Incident

Former Baylor tight end Tre’Von Armstead was arrested Wednesday for the second time in over a week and is facing sexual assault allegations for an alleged incident that occurred in Waco, Texas, in 2013.

A Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office official told ESPN that Armstead is being held at the jail there on $150,000 bond after he was arrested earlier Wednesday on a sexual assault warrant from McLennan County, Texas.

The Waco Tribune-Herald reported Wednesday night that the previously sealed indictment charges Armstead with three second-degree felony charges of sexual assault for an alleged incident that occurred in 2013, when he was still playing for the Bears. According to the newspaper, Armstead was indicted by a grand jury last week, but the indictment remained sealed until his arrest on Wednesday.

It’s the first time a former Baylor football player has been indicted for an alleged crime in which he was previously not charged. The 2013 case was suspended by Waco police after the alleged victim chose not to pursue charges against Armstead and former Bears running back Myke Chatman, who she accused of sexually assaulting her at her apartment.

Armstead and Chatman were never previously criminally charged in the incident involving the woman, a former Baylor Bruin recruiting hostess. At the time, the woman told police she didn’t want to pursue charges because she was too drunk to remember exactly what occurred. Police suspended the case after they were unable to retrieve text messages from Chatman and Armstead on her cell phone.
