Another week, another college football player gets arrested. 

This time the offender in question is University of Colorado defensive back Jeffrey Hall who was nicked this Saturday gone after a party.

Colorado was taken in by police after allegedly choking a woman later identified as a former member of the CU track team. 

Hall, 19, was arrested at 12:17 a.m. Saturday on suspicion of second-degree assault on a police officer, second-degree assault, resisting arrest, obstruction of a police possession of alcohol by a minor.

From the Daily Camera in Boulder:

"According to police records, officers received complaints of a loud party at 722 18th St. late Friday night. After arriving at the house, officers said a woman...came out the house and said a man had "choked her out."

Officers said that while they were talking to Lettow in the garage, when two men.. came out of the house. Officers said Hall began to rapidly approach Lettow and "appeared to want to physically harm Lettow," while Awuzie tried to restrain him, according to the report.

Two officers pulled their Tasers and told Hall and Awuzie to sit down multiple times before they complied. Officers said Hall began making comments about "(expletive) pigs" and how the police were targeting black men.

According to the report, Lettow made a comment to Hall to the effect of "that's what you get," and Hall started yelling at her then got up and lunged at her.

Three officers tried to get Hall back to the ground, but he continued to resist and began to punch and swing his arms at the officers. A fourth officer then deployed his Taser on Hall in the leg and then pressed the Taser against Hall's leg a second time when he failed to comply."

CU sports information director Dave Plati said on Tuesday that Hall has been suspended indefinitely by head coach Mike MacIntyre.

It's starting to get tiresome writing about college athlete after college athlete getting in trouble with the authorities.
