Texas A&M defensive tackle Zaycoven Henderson was released from jail on Monday, according to Brazos County (Texas) records.
Henderson had to post $40,000 in bond for his release after his arrest on three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of marijuana possession and one count of tampering with evidence with an intent to impair.
Henderson allegedly threatened to kill three people, pointing a rifle at one victim.
“Once the scene was secured, officers learned that the passenger in the vehicle pointed a rifle at one of the victims and also threatened the other two victims by stating he would kill them,” police said in a news release obtained by The New York Post. “Officers also learned the rifle had been discarded by the passenger in a nearby wooded area in an attempt to conceal the firearm.”
AggiesSports.com’s Travis Brown reports that the incident “occurred just hours after the Aggies’ annual football banquet, where Henderson was honored as a senior on the team.”
Upon his release, Henderson posted the following message from his Twitter account:
If It Wasn’t For God I Would Not Be Where I’m At Today 🕊™

Henderson started 11 games for Texas A&M in 2017, finishing the regular season with 35 tackles, 5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks. He started all 13 games for Kevin Sumlin’s Aggies during the 2016 season.
Texas A&M will play Wake Forest at the Belk Bowl in Charlotte, N.C., on Dec. 29, presumably without the senior defensive lineman.
