AUG 26, 2014 1:18a ET
NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune reports that Kelley, 21, was arrested Aug. 4 and posted a $10,000 bond at a court appearance that day.
Kelley's attorney, Scott R. Bickford, says in a statement that there was never any intent by Kelley ''to either harm the alleged victim or deprive him of his property.''
Kelley, a New Orleans native, has been away from the program because of academic issues, and the school issued a statement Monday night suspending the senior from the team.
Kelley has made six starts in 38 games with Tulane, rushing for 1,038 yards on 253 carries.
