College football player charged with assault, suspended
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A college football player in North Carolina has been suspended from playing after he was arrested on assault charges.
The Raleigh News & Observer reported Saturday that the player is Damontay Jaqual Rhem of North Carolina State University.
The 22-year-old was arrested Friday. He faces a charge of assault on a female. He was being held on no bail. It’s unclear if he’s obtained an attorney.
Fred Demarest, an N.C. State athletic department spokesman, said in a statement that the school is aware of the charges and awaiting additional details.
Rhem is a running back and a former walk-on who was put on scholarship in 2018.
