CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - A second Coastal Carolina University football player has been arrested in connection with an alleged simple assault and battery that occurred on the Conway campus Monday night.

According to Anne Trainer-Monk, assistant vice president of marketing communications at CCU, Jeremy Demetrius Harden, a freshman from Hamlet, NC, has been formally charged with simple assault and battery after reports surfaced of an inappropriate incident between him and a female student.

As stated in police reports obtained by WMBF News, the incident took place on the third floor of Maple Hall at the Conway campus.  The female victim claims Harden dangled her over a balcony after she asked him to turn down his music so that her roommates could study.

"The kind of disruptive behavior that has led to the arrest of two student-athletes within the past week will not continue on this campus," commented CCU President, David DeCenzo.

Harden has since been released on bond from the J. Reuben Long Detention Center after being taken into custody Monday night.  Officials at Coastal Carolina say Harden has been suspended from the university and football team on an interim basis.

A final determination of Harden's status as a student will be made through the campus judicial process.

DeCenzo said that he is "nevertheless disappointed by these incidents" and is not passing judgment on the guilt or innocence of any of the students involved.
