Tennessee sophomore safety Brent Brewer was arrested early Sunday morning and charged with misdemeanor domestic assault, including bodily injury or threat of injury.
According to the Knox County Sheriff's Department, Brewer was released late yesterday morning after posting bond set at $1,500. His court appearance is today.
Coach Derek Dooley has suspended Brewer from all team activities until more details are known in the ongoing investigation.
Brewer started in six games for the Vols and saw action in all 13 games last season for the Vols, recording 30 tackles. He was selected in the second round (60th overall) by the Milwaukee Brewers in 2006 and played four years of baseball as a shortstop/outfielder in the organization, most recently for Huntsville in Class AA Southern League.
Brewer originally signed to play football for Florida State in 2006 from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga. before opting to play baseball.
Efforts by The Daily Beacon to reach the UT athletic department for further comment were not immediately returned.
