TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities say an Arizona State University football player has been arrested in connection with a sexual assault.
Tempe police said Tuesday that Andres Rafael Garcia is being held on suspicion of two counts of sexual assault and one count of assault/domestic violence.
The 22-year-old defensive back was arrested late Sunday after police say he got involved in an argument with a 21-year-old woman he knew. It allegedly escalated into a physical assault.
Garcia is accused of shoving the woman backward into a wall, knocking her unconscious. Authorities say he then sexually assaulted the woman.
ASU officials say Garcia has been dismissed from the football team. He joined the Sun Devils last season as a non-scholarship player.
