TCU Horned Frogs player Devonte Fields has decided not to press charges after he was beaten with a gun, had his life threatened, and was burgled. 

According to the police report obtained by TCU 360, Fields was walking toward his house which is off campus in the early hours of the morning when he was jumped by three suspects, including one who used a semi-automatic pistol to strike the defensive end on top of his head.

The 2012 Big 12 defensive player of the year was then pushed into his house, where he was beaten and robbed, before the 6-foot-4, 240-pound Fields was taken back outside and had his life threatened, according to the report.

Fields, 20, told police he then grabbed the arm of one of the suspects and five shots were fired, including one that went into a home across the street, where the bullet was later collected by police.

Fields, who will be a junior next season, was suspended for the first two games of the 2013 season for a violation of team rules and wound up playing just one game due to injury. He had 43 tackles and 10 sacks as a freshman in his award winning 2012 season.
