Tennessee defensive back Jaylen McCollough was arrested Sunday and charged with aggravated felony assault by the Knox County Sheriff's Office, according to records obtained Knox News. McCollough is a four-year starter and key defensive playmaker for the No. 6 Volunteers. The athletic department has not released any statement on the arrest, but Tennessee coach Josh Heupel is scheduled to address the media during his weekly press conference on Monday.
McCollough allegedly pursued and punched a man who mistakenly entered his apartment after mistaking it for a friend's place. When the man tried to apologize and leave, McCollough allegedly punched him in the face and knocked him down the stairs, where he lost consciousness.
