Rutgers football captain Carroo allegedly slammed woman into ground
Rutgers football player Leonte Carroo is accused of slamming a woman he was romantically involved with into a concrete surface outside the school's Hale Center, according to a report by NorthJersey.com.
The 6-foot-1, 215 pound wide receiver from Edison is accused of "picking her up and slamming her down on a concrete surface, injuring her left hip, both palms, left elbow and left side of the head,” the report quotes a complaint filed with Piscataway Municipal Court saying.
The newspaper had earlier reported that a fight between two women started the incident between Carroo and the woman.
Rutgers University Police Captain Kenneth Cop had said in a statement that Carroo, 21, was arrested by the Rutgers University Police Department and charged with simple assault under domestic violence. The document shows Carroo was released on $1,000 bail after his arrest.
Earlier on Tuesday, Jamil C. Pollar became the latest former Rutgers football player to be charged with a crime after the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office announced home invasion charges against Pollard and additional charges against Lloyd M. Terry Jr., already implicated in a home robbery last spring.
Carroo has been suspended from the team by head football coach Kyle Flood and is not expected to play in Rutgers' Big 10 matchup with Penn State on Saturday.
