Another ex-Tennessee player was arrested in Florida this week, making it two former Vols detained in a two-day span for unrelated incidents.
Cosey Coleman faces charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and battery stemming from an incident in January, when he allegedly punched a man outside of a bar in Tampa, Fla., according to The Tampa Tribune. He was arrested at his home in Tampa on Monday.
Coleman played offensive line for Tennessee from 1997-1999 before he was drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the second round of the 2000 NFL Draft. He played seven seasons in the NFL and was a starter for the Buccaneers during the 2002 season that ended with a win in Super Bowl XXXVII.
One day after Coleman’s arrest, on Tuesday, former Vols offensive lineman Mack Crowder was arrested on five felony charges, including one for breaking Florida’s Computer Pornography and Child Exploitation Prevention Act.
Coleman was previously arrested for domestic violence in 2002 and 2008, according to the report.
