TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A University of Arizona football player arrested last month is due back in court Thursday morning, Oct. 12.

Scottie Sheldon Young Jr. was scheduled to face a judge in Pima County Justice Court for his arraignment hearing Wednesday, but the hearing was continued to Thursday at 8:30 a.m.

The freshman safety faces a charge of misdemeanor assault (knowingly causing injury) in connection with the incident at a residence hall.

Police said Young Jr. and his girlfriend were involved in an argument outside his dorm room.

The police report states the football player threw a laptop and a witness reported he spit on her. She was also taken into custody.

The report states the two had also gotten into an argument the day before the incident. She faces a charge of domestic violence assault with no injury.

Shortly after the incident, the university’s department of athletics released a statement, acknowledging the two arrests.
