Earlier today, reports surfaced that two Texas football players were under investigation for an alleged sexual assault that occurred very early Friday morning. While neither San Antonio police nor UT officials would confirm the names of the players, head coach Mack Brown stated during a press conference Friday afternoon that two unidentified players had been suspended for the Alamo Bowl for violating team rules and were sent back to Austin.
Subsequently, multiple media outlets, including 247Sports.com, Orangebloods.com, ESPN.com and the San Antonio Express-News, identified the suspended players as quarterback Case McCoy and linebacker Jordan Hicks.
As of yet, none of the sites reporting the suspensions have stated either McCoy or Hicks are a part of the SAPD’s investigation into the alleged assault.
A highly-redacted police report obtained by, among others, the Express-News paints a disturbing picture of what’s alleged to have taken place. From that paper:
According to a police report obtained by the Express-News, the incident happened between 2 and 2:40 a.m. on Friday. The woman said she met two men at a nightclub and invited them back to her room at the Holiday Inn Riverwalk. She admitted to drinking at least four alcoholic beverages before inviting them to her room, the report said.
She told police one man had sex with her while the other stood and watched, but she didn’t remember the situation in detail.
The report didn’t give the woman’s version of how the situation escalated. It indicated that the suspects were both students, one of them a 6-foot, 180-pound white male and the other a 6-foot-2, 235-pound black male.
According to the Longhorns’ official online roster, McCoy, who is a white male, is listed at 6-2, 200 pounds while Hicks, who is a black male, is listed at 6-2, 235 pounds.
No charges have been filed and no arrests have been made in relation to the alleged incident, with the investigation remaining open and ongoing.
