Two Texas A&M football players face assault charges stemming from an April fight, and one turned himself into the police on Monday morning, of College Station reports.

Deshazor Everett, a junior cornerback, and Floyd Raven Sr., a senior safety, face two counts of assault and one count of criminal mischief from their involvement in an April 30 dispute:

Court documents state two men received injuries after being struck in the face by Everett and Raven during an April 30 dispute at an apartment complex in College Station. More than $500 in damage was caused to a 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe when the student athletes pounded and kicked the vehicle at the scene of the fight, the documents state.

Raven turned himself in to the Brazos County Jail on Monday morning. It is unclear if Everett will follow suit, though there is a warrant out for his arrest. Chuck Carlton of the Dallas Morning News reports that both players have been suspended from team activities.

Everett started 12 games for Texas A&M last season, notching 56 total tackles and a team-high two interceptions. He snagged one of his two picks against Alabama’s AJ McCarron on a fourth-and-goal pass with less than two minutes remaining in A&M’s 29-24 win over the Tide. Raven played in all 13 games in 2012, recording 16 tackles and one sack.
