TCU kicker charged with going Bruce Lee on a door

Ross Evans

On the same day he was named the Mountain West’s special teams player of the week based on his kicking prowess, TCU’s Ross Evans now finds himself in some legal hot water for displaying those talents off the field.

According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Evans is facing a misdemeanor charge of criminal trespassing for an incident that allegedly occurred in Denton, Tex., Nov. 8.  A warrant had been issued for his arrest after, the paper writes, he kicked in an apartment door while trying to retrieve a cell phone for a friend of a friend.

Monday morning, Evans turned himself in on the warrant and was arrested, but was released from jail a short time later.  TCU is aware of the incident and is still in the information gathering stage.

A source close to the door tells CFT that it was briefly hospitalized following the incident, but has since returned home and is currently “just hanging out and whatnot.”

Evans has hit on 13-of-16 field goal attempts this season — 14-of-17 if you count the door — and his 88 points are good for 17th among kickers.

    “If it had been the Boise St kicker he would have missed the door”

    Ross Evans is the most hated person on the TCU campus. He can do pretty damn well against Colorado St. when were blowing them out, but any time the game is on the line he chokes big time.

    Everyone at TCU can’t wait to see him leave.

    that 13 – 16 stat is very, very misleading. He is a giant choke artist. He has almost lost us games on missed extra points.

    He is also notorious for not being able to keep a kickoff in bounds.

    Even though he only has two games left in his career, TCU fans are hoping he gets kicked off the team for this so he can’t screw up what ever bowl game we are in.

    In a game lost by 3 points to Utah in 2008, Ross Evans missed 2 very easy FGs ruining any hope we had for a potential BCS bowl that year.

    Good riddance to Ross Evans. He out stayed his welcome years ago.
