UCF receiver Tristan Payton tackled a man suspected of filming an underage girl in a campus bathroom and held him until police arrived, according to the Orlando Sentinel

The man, identified as UCF student Jonathan Hui, reportedly used his cell phone to film a girl using the bathroom at CFE Arena, where she and others were attending a cheerleading camp. 

When confronted by a coach and a staff member from the camp, Hui ran away, saying that he was going to delete the videos. 

Payton chased down Hui on campus as he attempted to escape, and took his phone so the video could not be deleted.

Hui was taken to the Orange County Jail and later released on bond.

Payton played in 10 games for UCF as a freshman, making 21 catches for 264 yards.
