A UT football player is in trouble with the law.

Austin police have arrested wide receiver Cayleb Jones.

Jones has been charged with aggravated assault, a second degree felony.

The incident involves three UT student athletes. Police say on Feb. 22 Jones punched a man after he saw him talking with Jones' ex-girlfriend at the Club Aquarium on 6th Street.

The victim suffered a fractured jaw. Police have identified that victim as Joseph Swaysland, tennis player at UT.

Police say Jones' ex-girlfriend is a volleyball player and she told officers that Jones threatened to fight Swaysland a week prior for speaking with her.

Jones was an All-American, he played for Austin High School. He is the son of Dallas Cowboys player Robert Jones.

Mack Brown released this statement:

"We are aware of Cayleb's situation and disappointed any time one of our players is accused of wrongdoing. We have talked with Cayleb and his family, and he has been suspended from all team activities pending the completion of the legal process. Any further action will be handled at the conclusion of the legal process."

Police say Jones has turned himself in at the jail and has been released on bond.
