HONOLULU (AP) -Hawaii cornerback Keenan Jones has been suspended from the team and was scheduled to make his first court appearance Thursday on two felony charges.
Jones, 22, was charged with unauthorized entry into a car and second-degree assault in separate incidents involving his girlfriend. He was released Saturday after posting $15,000 bail.
Warriors coach Greg McMackin said in statement that Jones, who appeared in 11 games last year, will be suspended indefinitely until the investigation is completed.
Jones was recently granted a fifth year of eligibility and was expected to compete for a starting position when spring practice opened next week.
He was arrested last Friday following an argument where he allegedly reached into his girlfriend's car and assaulted her. While being interviewed by police, the woman said she had been previously assaulted by Jones on March 11 and had not reported the incident.
She said two of her toes were fractured when Jones slammed her right foot in the door during an argument over a cable bill.
The second-degree assault charge stems from the March 11 incident.
Jones has been in trouble before. He has Family Court dates scheduled in April for two separate domestic abuse offenses that occurred last year.
