News has surfaced that UConn tight end Sean McQuillan was arrested this past weekend and charged with second degree assault.
The Daily Campus was the first to report the news.
McQuillan was released on a $500 non-surety bond and had a hearing on April 20.
He reportedly struck another individual and caused a significant amount of facial damage which resulted in his arrest.
“The athletic department is aware of the situation and we will wait for the judicial process to take its full course. In the meantime, Sean has a responsibility to finish out the semester academically,” stated Mike Enright, Senior Associate Director of Athletics/Communications.
In 2014, McQuillan recorded 16 receptions for 158 yards and a touchdown.
