University police spokesman Sgt. Aaron Davis says Brown was arrested Wednesday after an officer tried to question him in College Park in connection with a crime in Baltimore. Davis did not have information about that investigation, and Baltimore police didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Friday.
Davis says Brown assaulted an officer who tried to question him, ran away and secretly recorded their conversation with a smartphone he concealed in his pocket.
The athletics department says it's ``extremely concerned'' and that Brown has been suspended. Brown was the Terrapins' second-leading rusher last season, finishing with 382 yards on 90 carries.
