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.

Texas A&M dismisses promising safety

Texas A&M has dismissed safety Kameron Miles from the program for a violation of team rules. 247 Sports was first to report the roster news, via Twitter, on Wednesday.

Miles was a four-star safety recruit in Texas A&M’s Class of 2013. Despite his high star rating out of high school, Miles never made a dent on the Texas A&M depth chart due to redshirting in 2013 even though the Aggies at times seemed as though they could use some help in pass defense. Texas A&M had the SEC’s 12th ranked passing defense in 2013. Miles reportedly got off to a great start in Texas A&M’s spring practices this season, which makes the roster news a bit more meaningful for the Aggies. Miles was at one point considered a favorite, if not a lock, for a starting job at one of the safety positions this fall.

Miles took to Twitter to issue an apology for his actions, although his Twitter account has since been taken offline.

This is not the first time Texas A&M has had to deal with players getting in to some legal trouble. Defensive lineman Isaiah Golden and linebacker Darian Claiborne were recently suspended indefinitely just before the start of spring practices in College Station. Each were arrested on misdemeanor charges. The exact violation of team rules has not been confirmed, but to be dismissed from the program would suggest it was rater significant. The Houston Chronical reports Miles was involved in a theft.
