Texas A&M linebacker Josh Walker was arrested in College Station on Friday night, according to a report from the Houston Chronicle’s Brent Zwerneman.
Walker was detained at 10:10 p.m. on Friday night on charges of assault causing bodily harm to a family member, as well as interfering with emergency requested assistance, according to the arrest report from the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office.
According to the report from Zwerneman, a spokesman from Texas A&M said that Walker has been suspended from the team indefinitely.
As of the time this article was written, jail records indicate that Walker, who is 20 years old, was still being detained without bail. The initial arrest report available online did not provide details on the nature of the assault, nor did it identify the family member involved in the alleged incident.
Walker started five games at linebacker for the Aggies during the last two seasons while accumulating 45 career tackles. He had been competing for playing time at the position for his junior season during Aggies preseason camp, according to Zwerneman, who covers the team as a beat reporter.
Texas A&M opens its 2016 season on Sept. 3 with a game against Pac-12 opponent UCLA.
