Baylor lineman Rami Hammad arrested for stalking
Baylor redshirt junior offensive lineman Rami Hammad was arrested Monday for felony stalking, according to the Waco Tribune-Herald.
Hammad is accused of following an ex-girlfriend to a class on July 7 after the woman had made repeated attempts to keep Hammad from knowing her whereabouts.
When the woman left the classroom with her professor, Hammad allegedly followed them to the professor’s office and “began knocking on the door for several minutes.” The professor called the police, who told Hammad not to have further contact with the woman. Hammad was arrested after disobeying those instructions.
The woman told police that Hammad had been physically abusive. She also said “she no longer feels comfortable living in Waco and has moved out of the state,” according to the Tribune-Herald.
In a statement, Baylor confirmed that Hammad has been suspended from all team activities.
Hammad, 21, appeared in each of Baylor’s 13 games last season as a backup lineman and on special teams. He transferred to Baylor after one season at Texas.
