Former Baylor Lineman Linked To University’s Rape Cover-Up Arrested In Las Vegas

|

Tre’Von Armstead, an ex-Baylor football player who was heavily linked to the university’s rape cover-up, was arrested in Las Vegas on Monday, March 13.

Las Vegas police say that Armstead, 22, assaulted a woman and then ‘went crazy’ on the responding officer when he was being detained. The former D1 tight end then kicked out the back window of the squad car.

According to TMZ, Armstead, 6’6″, 280 lbs, is accused of pushing a woman in front of The Cromwell Hotel in Las Vegas.

Via TMZ:

FYI, Armstead was named in a rape investigation in 2013 … but Baylor reportedly failed to take action for roughly two years. Armstead was eventually dismissed from the team in 2015 for a “violation of team rules.” Armstead has denied any wrongdoing in the 2013 incident.

But Monday morning in Vegas, Armstead found himself in trouble again … when police officers say they watched the 6’6″, 280 pound tight end push a woman in front of The Cromwell Hotel.

Law enforcement sources tell us officers confronted Armstead and tried to arrest him but he resisted.¬†When they finally put him into the police car, we’re told he kicked out the back window.

Armstead was booked for battery domestic violence, resisting arrest, and damaging a police car.

Armstead, who was one of the first Baylor football players to be accused of rape under Art Briles, was kicked off the team for “violation of team rules.”
