Demond Demas has been arrested on a charge of assault family violence that occurred over the weekend, according to the Houston Chronicle.
The deatils are extremely gruesome.
According to the statement, the alleged victim who was Demas’s girlfriend, “Reported that the defendant pushed her head into the wall. Then she bit him on the shoulder. (She) reported that the defendant then grabbed her and threw her from off of the bed onto the floor, which caused her top front teeth to go through her bottom lip.
“The injury caused bleeding, loose teeth, swelling and a hole to the bottom of the lip. (She) stated that she and the defendant had been in an intimate dating relationship for a year.”
A&M has since responded and stated that Demas has been suspended from the university and is not with the football program as of early March. He is currently being held in the Brazos County Jail.
Unfortunately, he has been down this road once before with accusations. Last year, the mother of an another alleged victim was trying to get in contact with A&M’s coaches concerning Demas striking her daughter, who was Demas’s girlfriend at the time.
An investigation would kick off, but the Brazos County district attorney’s office ultimately declined to press charges and no arrest was made.
This past season, Demas played in 10 games as a redshirt freshman before an injury sidelined him for the last two contests.
