Ex-Cowboy Spillman charged with sexual assault in Texas

BY foxsports • July 1, 2015

GRAPEVINE, Texas -- Former Cowboys special teams player C.J. Spillman has been arrested on a sexual assault charge in an alleged 2014 incident at a Dallas-area hotel.

Tarrant County jail records show Spillman surrendered early Wednesday and was freed on $15,000 bond.

Grapevine police say a grand jury indicted Spillman on Monday after the alleged assault of a woman last Sept. 20 at the Gaylord Texan Resort, where he was staying.

Sgt. Robert Eberling says the woman filed a complaint within days of the incident. Eberling declined to provide further details on the investigation.

Spillman became a free agent in March.

His agent, Ron Slavin, declined comment Wednesday about the criminal case and says Spillman no longer lives in the Dallas area.

The Cowboys also declined comment.
