He has released from jail, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

According to his arrest affidavit, which was obtained by the Star-Telegram, he had an altercation with his girlfriend late Saturday night. He allegedly “dragged” her across a parking lot and “slammed” her to the ground.

His girlfriend to the authorities that the two have been together for five-years. She said that the altercation happened after he believed she was sending photos to other people.

A witness said that he was “manhandling” his girlfriend after he allegedly dragged her across the parking lot. The same witness said he was “grabbing her from behind with one arm across her neck.”

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

“Everybody knows how I handle things like this,” Patterson said on Monday during the Big 12 coaches call. “My track record usually speaks for itself if you go back through it. We’re gathering information, but at this point in time, he probably won’t play against Kansas.”

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.
