TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An Arizona Wildcats football player has been arrested on an assault charge.

According to court documents from Pima County, Scottie Sheldon Young Jr. was arrested Wednesday, Sept. 27, on a misdemeanor charge of assault-knowingly causing injury.

Young, a freshman safety, has 20 tackles in four games this year for the Wildcats (2-2).

He appeared in court Thursday morning and was released. His next court appearance is an arraignment scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 11.

The Daily Wildcat reported it was a domestic violence incident and the University of Arizona released the following statement.

"We're aware that Scottie Young was charged with a misdemeanor, as was the other party involved. We are working with the university's Dean of Students Office to gather more information."

The 5-foot-11, 195-pound Young is from San Diego and prepped at Helix High School.

Young's arrest comes a year after running back Orlando Bradford was dismissed from the team after he was accused of domestic violence, kidnapping and aggravated assault.
