UNC linebacker Allen Artis has been arrested following allegations of sexual assault, according to the Orange County Sheriff’s Office.
A UNC student – Delaney Robinson – held a press conference on Tuesday alleging Artis raped her on Valentine’s Day on campus.
Robinson took out self-sworn warrants for misdemeanor charges of assault and sexual battery because she says she has been dissatisfied with the investigation from UNC Police and the Orange County District Attorney’s Office. Officials with the DA’s Office say the investigation is still open and active with felony charges possible.
Authorities say Artis turned himself in on Wednesday and was released on a $5,000 unsecured bond.
Artis has been suspended indefinitely from the football team.
Artis is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday afternoon.
