FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU defensive end Devonte Fields has surrendered to authorities on a misdemeanor assault warrant.

That's after TCU suspended the defensive standout earlier this week amid allegations he punched an ex-girlfriend in the head and threatened her with a gun while shouting, "I should blast you!"

Fields surrendered to Tarrant County authorities Thursday afternoon and was released a short time later after posting bond of $3,500.

The Big 12 preseason defensive player of the year hasn't been formally charged but has been accused of a Class A misdemeanor assault, which would be punishable by up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

Officers say the 20-year-old woman's right cheek was swollen and she had a cut under an eye when they arrived at a Fort Worth home early Sunday.
