Hurricanes suspend linebacker over battery arrest
Miami Hurricanes’ Deshawn Troutman is facing a misdemeanor battery charge in Miami-Dade County.
The University of Miami announced on Friday that the #19 linebacker from Orlando had been suspended from all team activities indefinitely.
Records show officers arrested Troutman on March 22nd, just two days after his 19th birthday. He was released on a $1,500 bond on March 23rd, and the judge ordered him to stay away from the alleged victim.
Troutman, a sophomore, plead not guilty and his arraignment hearing is set for 9:45 a.m., on April 12th. Local 10 News has a pending records request for details on the case.
