Why not start another college football Saturday with another resetting of the “Days Without An Arrest” tracker?
Multiple media outlets reported this past week that Arizona’s Scottie Young Jr. was arrested Wednesday in connection with a domestic violence incident. The true freshman safety was charged with one count of assault/knowingly causing injury, a misdemeanor.
The woman who the 18-year-old Young allegedly assaulted was charged as well.
“We’re aware that Scottie Young was charged with a misdemeanor, as was the other party involved,” the football program said in a statement. “We are working with the university’s Dean of Students Office to gather more information.”
Thus far, no details of what led to the twin arrests have been released.
Young had started the first four games of the 2017 season for the Wildcats, and is currently third on the team in tackles with 20. And, according to one analytics-based website, had been playing at a very high level when it comes to freshmen on either side of the ball.
