TCU defensive end Devonte Fields will not press charges after he was attacked outside his residence early on Tuesday morning, according to TCU360.com.
A report from the Fort Worth Police Department detailed an attack on Fields by three unidentified suspects.
The report said that Fields went outside to start his car, and then returned to his house when three suspects came up behind him. One of the suspects hit Fields on the top of the head with a black semi-automatic pistol and pushed him into his house.
Two of the three suspects began to assault Fields with their fists, while the third suspect stole items including a cellphone and an Xbox video game system, according to the report.
During the struggle, shots were fired into the air before the suspects fled. Fields opted not to press charges and declined a search of his residence after originally consenting.
In a statement, Horned Frogs head coach Gary Patterson said, “Devonte Fields is a victim here, and he’s okay. He went to class and workouts today.”
Fields played in only three games in 2013 after being named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, when he had 18.5 tackles for loss and 10 sacks.
