Texas A&M wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones was could be suspended by the school following an arrest for disorderly conduct.

Seals-Jones was taken into custody early Sunday morning on a disorderly conduct charge according to a report by KBTX. As it is being reported, a police officer saw Seals-Jones be bumped in o by someone outside a bar and Seals-Jones got in to a heated verbal exchange. Although no punches were thrown, the officer on the scene said tensions were getting to a tipping point and Seals-Jones apparently was attempting to pick a fight. At that point, the officer stepped in and made the arrest accompanied by the misdemeanor charge.

Texas A&M has initially issued an indefinite suspension to keep in line with school policy, but that decision was overturned until the school has more information on the incident.

Seals-Jones took a medical red shirt in 2013 after injuring his knee in a season-opening win against Rice. It is expected he will become the team’s top target this fall, replacing Mike Evans. He is the fourth Aggie player to be arrested this spring. Quarterback Kenny Hill, a starting quarterback candidate, was arrested for public intoxication in late March. Linebacker Darian Claiborne (disorderly conduct) and defensive lineman Isaiah Golden (possession of marijuana) were arrested and suspended in late February. Texas A&M also dismissed promising safety Kameron Miles for a violation of team rules in early March.

UPDATE: It was originally reported Texas A&M issued an indefinite suspension, but that decision was scaled back until more information could be reviewed.

    He will be suspended for 1 quarter. And let that be a lesson to the rest of you. UT is still the best program in Texas.
