LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) -New Mexico State receiver A.J. Harris rejoined the team Wednesday after athletic director McKinley Boston said a resolution regarding a misdemeanor battery charge was reached.
Harris, 21, was accused of slapping a former girlfriend. He pleaded not guilty at his July 16 arraignment.
Police responded to a July 8 call by a woman about damage to her Las Cruces home. When Harris was questioned, police said he told officers he had slapped her.
Harris, who remained free on bond since then, was the Aggies' second leading receiver last season. He caught 71 passes for 789 yards with seven touchdowns.
``A resolution regarding A.J. Harris' misdemeanor charge has been worked out and will be presented to the courts very soon,'' Boston said in a statement.
The school didn't provide any other details.
``I always believed in A.J.'s innocence and now we can move on,'' coach Hal Mumme said.
