FORT WORTH, Texas — TCU has suspended defensive end Devonte Fields pending results of a police investigation into whether he punched a former girlfriend in the head and threatened her with a gun.

Officers reported that 20-year-old Haley Brown’s right cheek was swollen and she had a cut under her eye when they arrived at a Fort Worth home early Sunday.

Police on Tuesday said that no charges have been filed and Fields, the Big 12’s preseason defensive player of the year, has not been arrested.

An emailed statement from TCU says the school doesn’t tolerate harassment or misconduct by a student and that the allegations against Fields will be go through an internal discipline process.

Brown told police that she and Fields dated for two years and broke up June 1.
