NCAA: Maryland RB Wes Brown Charged With Assault

Jul 8 2013, 12:20am CDT | by

Maryland Terrapins sophomore running back Wes Brown was arrested charged with assaulting an officer.

Maryland Terrapins sophomore running back Wes Brown was arrested and charged with assaulting an officer. 

CBS Baltimore reports Brown is a "person of interest" in a non-fatal shooting incident in Baltimore. The assault allegedly came after he was questioned by an officer about it. 

University of Maryland police spokesman Sgt. Aaron Davis said Brown was arrested on Wednesday. In addition to the assault charge, Brown tried to flee and record his conversation with the officer using a smartphone he concealed inside his pocket. 

The wiretapping charge against Brown was described by officers as "an unlawful interception of oral communication," per USA Today Sports' Paul Myerberg. 

As soon as the Maryland athletics department got word of Brown's involvement, it suspended him and disallowed him from taking part in any football-related activity. It also released a statement saying it will cooperate with local authorities regarding the matter. On top of the assault and wiretapping charges, he was also charged with theft of less than $1,000. 

"This is a matter that we take very seriously. We have been in contact with the local authorities and will continue to cooperate throughout the entire process."

According to the Terrapins' SB Nation site, Brown has a preliminary hearing on July 31 at 8:45 a.m. in Upper Marlboro. The bail of $7,500 was determined solely by his assault charge. The report also adds the wiretapping charge against him is a felony. 

The Washington Times' Alex Prewitt tweeted on the morning of July 6 that Brown has been released from jail. 

As a freshman in 2012, Brown was the Terrapins' second-leading rusher who amassed 382 yards on 90 carries. He also finished with two touchdowns.
