RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) A reserve cornerback for No. 8 North Carolina has been arrested on an assault charge hours after the Tar Heels beat North Carolina State, leading to his indefinite suspension.
Raleigh police say cornerback Tyreece Jiles got into a fight with a nightclub employee near downtown at about 2 a.m. Sunday. He was charged with simple assault and released on a $1,200 bond. He is due in court Monday.
The school announced Jiles' suspension Sunday evening, saying it was for a violation of team rules.
The senior from Cape Coral, Florida, has one career start and has one tackle in eight games this season. He's listed as T.J. Jiles on the roster.
