ASU Football Player Garcia Dismissed After Sexual Assault Charge

Jun 12 2013, 2:06am CDT | by

Arizona State football player Andres Garcia was arrested during the weekend over a sexual assault charge and was subsequently dismissed from the program.

Arizona State football player Andres Garcia was arrested over a sexual assault charge and subsequently dismissed from the program.

According to Fox Sports Arizona’s Tyler Lockman, Garcia joined the team last season as a non-scholarship walk-on and saw action on special teams in eight games.  

Garcia, per Tempe Police reports, was arrested late Sunday on two counts of sexual assault and one count of assault / domestic violence related to an incident that occurred early Friday morning.

He apparently got into an argument with a 21-year-old woman that ended up with Garcia shoving her into a wall, knocking her unconscious in the process. When she came to, Garcia and his companions brought her to her home. Once they got there, he and another friend carried her to the bedroom. Garcia allegedly spoke to her privately at which time the sexual assault took place without the victim’s consent.

The police report also reveals the victim said she could see and hear but could not cry, yell or move her body when Garcia allegedly raped her. Witnesses also claim the door was locked and they could hear the victim choking or coughing.

Police said the victim’s roommate said Garcia told her that he had sex with the victim and that “she didn’t say no.” Tempe authorities say he called the victim on Saturday to apologize and pleaded with her not to press charges. He was eventually arrested on Sunday night and booked into the Tempe City Jail.

 

ASU officials say Garcia has been dismissed from the football team. He joined the Sun Devils last season as a non-scholarship player, playing just one season for the team.
