North Carolina Tar Heels defensive back Malik Simmons was arrested earlier this week and has been indefinitely suspended from the team by head coach Larry Fedora. Kevin McGuire of NBC Sports’ College Football Talk reported Simmons’ arrest and suspension, which was announced via a statement by the university.
Simmons has already been arrested once this summer on a misdemeanor marijuana charge, for which he is due in court next week. No details on his most recent arrest have been given, but McGuire writes that “multiple outlets” are stating that Simmons was charged with resisting arrest on Wednesday and has since been released on bond.
Simply put, it’s looking like Simmons has played his last down for UNC. In three seasons with the Tar Heels, he had 86 tackles and a forced fumble.
Campus Sports will update Simmons’ situation as more details become available.
