KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee cornerback Bryce Thompson has been arrested on a domestic assault charge stemming from an argument with his girlfriend.
A woman told police the argument began Saturday night after she found another woman’s fake eyelashes in Thompson’s room. She said the argument began in Thompson’s dorm room, moved to a stairwell and continued for 10 to 20 minutes.
Thompson and the woman said they had been dating for four years.
Witnesses told police they heard Thompson threatening to slap a woman. One witness said he heard Thompson yelling that he would “shoot up the school.”
Police say Thompson acknowledged arguing with the woman but denied making physical contact with her
