Texas Christian University defensive end Devonte Fields will meet with school administrators Tuesday in the wake of an arrest stemming from a domestic dispute in order to discuss his status as a student, the Dallas Morning News reported Monday

The school and Fields "separated" on July 22 after it was revealed Fields was present at the scene of an incident involving his ex-girlfriend two days earlier. On July 25, Fields surrendered to Tarrant Country authorities and was booked on a misdemeanor assault warrant. The defensive standout is alleged to have punched his ex-girlfriend in the head and threatened to shoot her.

While the school has not yet commented on if or when Fields will receive a specific punishment, Horned Frogs coach Gary Patterson called the situation with his star defender disappointing

Fields was the 2012 Big 12 defensive player of the year as a freshman. He was suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season for an unspecified violation of university and team policy.
