Report: TCU DE Devonte Fields pointed gun at ex-girlfriend, threatend to ‘blast you’

Devonte Fields, Wes Lunt

Star TCU defensive end Devonte Fields is being investigated by police for allegedly pointing a gun at his ex-girlfriend and threatening to shoot her, according to a report by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

Fields allegedly punched his ex-girlfriend with a closed fist in the incident as well.

From the Star-Telegram:

There, 20-year-old Haley Brown told officers that Fields had apparently been standing outside the bedroom window listening to her talk to a mutual male friend. Brown told police Fields then punched out the window of their friend’s bedroom from the outside and began yelling at her.

“Haley stated that she thought Devonte was holding a gun in one of his hands and stated that he pointed it at her,” the report states.

“I should blast you!” he yelled at Haley, according to the report.

There are more details of the alleged incident in the Star-Telegram article, but if these accusations are true, Fields is in a world of trouble — and coach Gary Patterson would have justification to kick him off the team. No charges have been filed an arrest has yet to be made as the investigation remains ongoing.

Fields was tabbed as the Big 12 preseason defensive player of the year, though Patterson said Monday he was surprised at that and, as the Dallas Morning News’ Chuck Carlton put it:

Fields only played in three games last year and underwent foot surgery in October, but was the Big 12′s Freshman Defensive Player of the Year in 2012.

    This guy sounds like a future Auburn Tiger.

    The only football he should be playing is in the prison system league. Why not just dismiss him immediately or at least suspend him. To not do anything is mind-boggling.

    I imagine once charges are filed, he’ll be suspended or dismissed.

    This is still America. We don’t adjudicate on “Reports”.

    Was he pointing the gun sideways?

    Is TCU affiliated with any specific faith or is it non-denominational?

    TCU’s program has got nothing but bad press the last year or so. Lots of losses, drug problems galore, and now this.

    And talk about guy whose stock has plummeted: Gary Patterson went 36-3 the three seasons before joining the Big 12. He would have had his pick of probably any opening out there. But he’s now 11-14 overall since they joined the Big 12, 6-12 in conference, and getting the reputation of a guy who’s lost control over his team.

    Based on what transpired over in Lubbock between a football player and female basketball player, we may want to slow play the judgments a bit.

    Apparently he has been “separated” from the university pending the investigation…

    If he did this all I can say is what a dumb ass.

    He just announced, that he’s transferring to Auburn

    It’s bad news for Devonte but he brought this on himself. He is such a talented player but he needs to grow up.

    Hopefully he turns his life around and becomes a productive member of society.

    Usually they say “smoke you” but I guess he still got his point across!
