Texas: football player dismissed because of revenge porn case

19:55 Nov 5 2015 San Antonio, TX, USA

A University of Texas at San Antonio freshman football player, who was dismissed from the team last week, now faces criminal charges under the state's new 'revenge porn' law.

The student, 18, was arrested Wednesday on charges of family assault and unlawful disclosure, a class A misdemeanor.

An arrest affidavit indicates the man threatened to hit a woman with a brick at an on-campus apartment complex Nov. 1. The affidavit states he grabbed the woman's arm, causing it to bruise.

The woman told officers the student had also uploaded "intimate pictures" of her to Twitter. Officers later found the images online, according to the affidavit.

A spokesman for the UTSA football team wrote via email Thursday that this team member was dismissed from the team Oct. 27 for a violation of team rules unrelated to the criminal charges
