AUSTIN (KXAN) — Travis County Jail records show a Texas Longhorns football player was arrested Thursday night on a misdemeanor charge.
In a statement, Longhorns head coach Steve Sarkisian said Agiye Hall, 19, has been suspended indefinitely from team activities for “conduct detrimental to our program.”
According to an arrest affidavit, Hall “was irate over having his vehicle booted by UT Parking and Transportation.”
The affidavit said an officer saw Hall swinging a tire iron at the parking boot. The boot partially shattered and separated from the wheel.
Records show Hall was arrested by the University of Texas Police Department. UTPD said the incident happened at 20th Street and San Jacinto around 7:18 p.m. Thursday.
Hall faces one charge of criminal mischief equal to or greater than $100 but less than $750. An attorney representing Hall had “no comment” when reached by KXAN.
The Texas athletics website lists Hall as a wide receiver for the Longhorns. He transferred from Alabama to Texas in April. Crimson Tide head coach Nick Saban suspended the wide receiver indefinitely this spring before the receiver announced his intentions to transfer to the Longhorns.
The Valrico, Florida native caught four passes during his freshman season at Alabama. Due to injuries at wide receiver, Hall made his biggest on-the-field impact for Alabama in the national championship game against Georgia, catching two passes for 52 yards.
