For the second time in less than two weeks, former Baylor tight end Tre’Von Armstead has been arrested.

According to ESPN.com, Armstead, accused of sexual assault,was taken into custody in Waco, Texas, on Wednesday and is being held on a $150,000 bond.

The details surrounding the alleged assault are unknown because the indictment is sealed.

Armstead and former Baylor running back Myke Chatman was previously accused of sexually assaulting a Baylor female student at her apartment in 2013, but it’s unclear if the current charges stem from that incident.

The two were never indicted because the woman didn’t press charges, but two years later Armstead was dismissed from the football team for a “violation of team rules.”

He was one of the first Baylor players swept up in the sexual assault scandal that has rocked the school and its football team. Armstead and Chatman’s accuser recently filed a federal Title IX lawsuit against the school for creating an unsafe environment within the football program for women and for not looking into her claim for nearly two years.

It’s the second arrest this month for Armstead, whowas taken into custody on March 13 in Las Vegas and charged with domestic violence battery, resisting a public officer and tampering with a police vehicle.

Police allege they saw him shove a woman inside a casino. When they tried to arrest him outside, he tried to fight off the officers and was arrested. When he was placed inside a police cruiser, he kicked out the back window.
