Kavontae Turpin, a star wide receiver for the TCU Horned Frogs football program, was allegedly arrested over the weekend. Turpin was reportedly arrested on an assault charge for assault with bodily injury.
“It appears that TCU star wideout Kavonte Turpin was allegedly arrested yesterday for assault w/ bodily injury. It’s on the local news and the arrest report is attached. Tough year so far for the Frogs. This would be a huge loss for TCU and a big hit to Turpins NFL projections,” TCU reporter Andry Burrell wrote on Twitter.
The Horned Frogs have since commented on his arrest.
“Texas Christian University is aware that one of its students was recently arrested for a reported domestic situation,” TCU said in a statement. “The university takes these types of reports very seriously and is continuing to gather information to determine next steps. TCU expects its students to behave in an ethical manner, abide by campus policies and adhere to state and federal law.
“The student also may face a charge of violating the University Code of Student Conduct, the results of which are independent and separate from any legal charges.”
It is a big loss for the Horned Frogs.
Throughout the season, Turpin has had 29 receptions for 410 yards and three touchdowns.
