North Carolina linebacker Travis Hughes has been suspended from all team activities after being charged with assault, reports the Charlotte Observer

Police charged Hughes yesterday morning following an altercation with an on-campus parking attendant. The team suspension, handed down by coach Larry Fedora, was given later on in the day. UNC football spokesman Kevin Best said the coach suspended Hughes "immediately" upon learning the news.

Hughes started 11 of the Tar Heels regular season games but missed the Belk Bowl through injury. The junior finished the year tied fifth for tackles with 76, and registering one sack.

This isn't the first time that Hughes has had a run in with the law. Last January he was charged with possessing 'drug paraphernalia' and was disciplined in house.
