In the past couple of days since Texas safety Christian Scott was arrested on an assault charge and subsequently suspended by head coach Mack Brown, there have been very few, if any, details as to what led to the arrest.
Thanks to the Austin American-Statesman, some harsh light has been shed on the situation.
The American-Statesman obtained the arrest warrant for Scott stemming from the incident Monday warrant, with the affidavit stating that Scott’s 2000 Cadillac was in the process of being repossessed (not pictured) by Jeanne Somers Doyle, the female owner of the repo company. The paper goes on to relay the details of what allegedly occurred when Scott discovered his car was being repo’d for falling behind on payments:
Doyle, using a key to the car that was provided by Alamo Financial, the finance company that holds the lien, entered the car and began driving it out of the complex.
Her path, however, was blocked by a driver in a Ford Mustang, according to the affidavit.
Scott, whom Doyle said she recognized from a previous repossession of Scott’s Cadillac last year, got out of the Mustang and began yelling profanities at her, according to the report. Doyle told police that Scott pulled her from the Cadillac and threw her to the ground.
Scott then fled in the Cadillac, according to the affidavit. He was arrested at a nearby gas station.
The same day Scott was charged with misdemeanor assault with bodily injury, the defensive back was suspended indefinitely by the football program and his future with the Longhorns is very much up in the air.
