Hoosiers suspend all-conference tight end following arrest

February 25, 2020 GMT

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Indiana coach Tom Allen has suspended record-breaking tight end Peyton Hendershot indefinitely.

Monday’s announcement comes less than two days after Hendershot was arrested. He allegedly entered the apartment of a former girlfriend without her permission. He also is accused of grabbing and shoving the woman, according to the police report.

He faces preliminary charges of felony residential entry and three misdemeanors — domestic battery, criminal mischief and criminal conversion.

A statement released by the team said the suspension will begin immediately.

″(Allen) will continue to evaluate the situation pending further developments,” the statement said.

Last season, the 20-year-old redshirt sophomore set school records for a tight end with 52 receptions, 622 yards and four touchdowns. He was a third-team all-Big Ten selection by the media and received honorable mention honors from the league’s coaches.
