UTEP DB arrested on suspicion of assault

Oh, the offseason. You’ve been especially… special… this year.

Anyway, the latest player to find himself in need of some preseason camp structure is UTEP defensive back Richard Spencer, who was arrested early Wednesday morning in connection to a fight outside a bar.

From the El Paso Times:

Spencer allegedly pushed a 22-year woman on the shoulders and against a white truck, El Paso Police spokesman Darrel Petry said. She was injured in the incident.

Spencer walked away from the officers after being told to stop, Petry said. Officers caught Spencer and placed him under arrest on suspicion of assault causing bodily injury and evading arrest, Petry said.

UTEP head coach Sean Kugler only said he is in the information-gathering stage at the moment, and no disciplinary action had been taken as of yet.

Spencer’s 2012 season ended after just four games last year because of a knee injury, but he was the team’s leading tackler at the time with 36 total tackles. He also had an interception and two fumble recoveries.

    These college kids just love to fight; they love to go to bars; they love to get “tanked”; and they wonder why they get dismissed from the team and school. Here’s a suggestion: don’t get tanked up. If you feel the need to “get rough” with a woman, walk-away….even if she is breaking up with you. Women are not objects to be owned; they are human beings like you and I. Society does not accept putting your hands on a woman unless she wants you to put your hands on her. You will know the difference. Now this young woman is injured and you’re a THUG!!!
