Nebraska football defensive end Barry Turner is set to be arraigned today after his arrest on suspicion of assaulting a 20-year-old woman.
According to police reports, the woman who shares an apartment with Turner was picked up and carried back into the house after Turner confronted her about a phone call that was made.
The report states the woman alleges that Turner hit her with a pillow and bit her arm because she would not talk.
This happened last Friday around 10pm. Husker head coach Bo Pelini released a statement saying, “We are well aware of the situation involving Barry Turner, and feel we have a good handle on it. We will continue to deal with this matter as it plays out.”
Turner is a fifth year senior from Tennessee. He is being considered for a starting position on the defensive line.
