According to Shehan Jeyarajah at Dave Campbell’s Texas Football, TCU Horned Frogs wide receiver and kick returner KaVontae Turpin was arrested on March 15th in Las Cruces, New Mexico. The site alleges that Turpin has an active bench warrant out for him after he failed to appear in court.

Turpin — who was also arrested on Sunday — was charged with battery of a household member in the New Mexico incident. He was also charged with criminal damage to the property of a household member of $1,000, and interference with communications.

He previously entered a plea of not guilty to the first two charges, according to the site.

Turpin was supposed to appear in court on July 16th in a pre-trial hearing. However, he did not show up and judge Joel Cano issued a bench warrant for his arrest on July 17th.

He is still facing the assault against a family member. The site says that if he’s convicted of that charge, he could face up to six months in prison.

Turpin was then arrested on Sunday and charged with causing bodily harm to a family member. However, the arrest affidavit, which was obtained by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, insists that he was arrested for an incident with his girlfriend.

He is facing a Class A misdemeanor in Texas. If he is convicted of this charge, he faces one-year in prison and a $4,000 fine.

He has since been suspended by the school.

Turpin is a senior on the football team. In seven games, he has 29 receptions for 410 yards and three touchdowns. He also has four carries for 32 yards.

He has 12 kickoff returns for 312 yards and a touchdown. He also has nine punt returns for 175 yards and another touchdown.

He just had a 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday.

Turpin is presently second in the Big 12 Conference in all-purpose yards per game. He is averaging 132.7 yards per contest.
