The AP’s Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, TCU’s DE Devonte Fields was attacked and robbed at gun point at his home Tuesday morning according to TCU365.com:
The report said that Fields went outside to start his car, and then returned to his house when three suspects came up behind him. One of the suspects hit Fields on the top of the head with a black semi-automatic pistol and pushed him into his house.
Two of the three suspects began to assault Fields with their fists, while the third suspect stole items including a cellphone and an Xbox video game system, according to the report.
The struggle between Fields and the suspects ended up on the driveway. One of the suspects then pointed a semi-automatic pistol at Fields and told him he was going to kill him, according to the report.
The report said Fields grabbed the right forearm of one of the suspects and five shots were fired into the air.
That’s a very serious attack and Fields is very luck to escape with no major injuries. The strange part of this is that he doesn’t want to press charges, refused to consent to the police searching his apartment, and the police have put the investigation on hold.
Let’s see how this one turns out.
