Tipa Galeai, a Texas Christian University football player from Euless, Texas, has been accused of assaulting two students on campus back in January.
Galeai, a defensive end, is accused of chasing down two students and assaulting them on campus on January 21. Galeai, 20, was booked into jail, being charged with assault causing bodily injury. According to court records, he was released on $5,000 bond.
According to TCU spokeswoman Holly Ellman, Galeai, a Trinity High School graduate, was expelled student at the university. A statement from TCU reads:
“Texas Christian University expects its students to behave in an ethical manner, abide by campus policies and adhere to state and federal law.”
The two victims, who have yet to be identified, told police that the incident happened at about 2:00 P.M. on January 21 when they saw Galeai yelling at them near Stadium and Bellaire drives. One of the witnesses said he looked angry and “extremely intoxicated.”
According to the police reports, Galeai started to chase the two students, who ran into the P.E. Clark residence halls where they unsuccessfully tried to hold the door shut. Galeai then punched one student several times. He was left with a swollen eye and lip. Galeai then assaulted the second student who was also left with a busted lip.
Galeai, 6’5″, 235 lbs, played in 10 games last season, racking up 24 total tackles and 3.5 sacks.
