TALLAHASSEE — Florida State suspended receiver Greg Dent indefinitely Monday, less than 24 hours after he was arrested and charged with sexual assault.
The school said Dent, who caught 27 passes for 355 yards and two touchdowns as a junior last season, will not play while the felony charge is pending. Dent, 23, was arraigned Monday and released on $15,000 bail. His attorney, Tim Jansen, did not return a phone call.
According to a Tallahassee Police Department report, the woman, who was not identified, decided to sleep at Dent's apartment, something she had done often before without problems. But, the report said, she alleges he twice tried to engage her in sex before she was able leave the apartment.
