    After being separated from TCU earlier in the week following allegations of a domestic dispute, defensive end DeVonte’ Fields surrendered Thursday at the Tarrant County Warrant Desk on a misdemeanor assault bodily injury warrant.

    Fields posted a $3,500 bond after turning himself in, and then was released, Fort Worth Police Department Public Information Officer Sgt. Raymond Bush said.

    A Class A misdemeanor, Fields’ charge is punishable by up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

    Fields is still listed on the TCU football team roster as of Friday morning at 10:30 a.m.

    According to the original police report, the assault happened Sunday at around 3:45 a.m. on Lubbock Avenue, and Fields left the scene before police officers arrived.

    Haley Brown, 20, told police Fields was standing outside a bedroom window while listening to her talk with mutual friend, Kevin White.

    White, a senior cornerback, is one of Fields’ teammates on the football team.

    Brown told police Fields punched White’s bedroom window in from the outside and started yelling at her.

    According to the report, Brown said she thought Fields was holding a gun in one of his hands and said he pointed it at her before yelling.

    The report went on to say Brown said Fields was then let into the house by White’s roommate when he continued to yell at Brown. Fields then punched her once in the face, which Brown said caused her pain.

    Brown’s right cheek was swollen and had a small cut under her eye, according to the report. Brown later told police she didn’t want to pursue charges.

    Fields and Brown dated for two years before breaking up in June, Brown told police.

    A Fort Worth native, Fields was attacked and robbed at his off-campus home in late January. Fields won AP Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year in 2012.
