COLLEGE STATION – Another Texas A&M football player has been arrested, this time for disorderly conduct in the Northgate District, acording to a report from KBTX.

Ricky Seals-Jones, a freshman wide receiver from Sealy, was taken into custody around 2:30 a.m. Sunday on a charge of disorderly conduct (language).

According to police, Seals-Jones was being “carried away by his friends” as the bars were closing in the 100 block of College Main.

An officer says he saw someone bump into Seals-Jones, which led the wideout to reportedly start exchanging words with the person.

As the officer moved towards the scene to see and hear what was going on, he says Seals-Jones broke away from his friends and yelled “F*** you! You want some?”

The officer also says Seals-Jones motioned to the other person like he wanted to fight. The player was taken into custody on the misdemeanor charge.

Seals-Jones was injured in the 2013 season opener against Rice while scoring a touchdown. He sat out the next game against Sam Houston State, had limited playing time in the Alabama game, and was given a medical redshirt to maintain his year of eligibility. He was among the most highly-touted wide receivers in the nation out of high school.

Aggie Athletics spokesperson Alan Cannon tells News 3 that the university officials are looking into the incident and determining what steps to take. For past arrests of players, indefinite suspensions have been handed down.

Since spring practice has passed, Cannon said if a suspension were levied, it would include team lifting and running for the time being.

The arrest is just the latest for the A&M football team in recent months.

Starting quarterback contender Kenny Hill Jr. was arrested on March 28 for public intoxication outside another Northgate establishment when he was allegedly found by authorities passed out in a planter.

In late February, defensive tackle Isaiah Golden and linebacker Darian Claiborne were taken into custody at an apartment complex, the former for alleged possession of marijuana, the latter for an noise violation because he was allegedly yelling while police were questioning people.

Claiborne was arrested Dec. 22 on drug charges.
