MIAMI -- Miami Hurricanes cornerback Antrel Rolle has been charged with a felony count of battery on a police officer and two misdemeanors.

The 21-year-old Rolle also is charged with resisting an officer without violence and disorderly conduct, according to the Miami-Dade County clerk of courts Web site. No other details were immediately available.

Local news reports said Rolle bonded out of Miami-Dade County jail, and officials there confirmed he was no longer being held. Rolle is scheduled to have a court hearing Aug. 2, according to the Web site.

Rolle is one of Miami's top returning players after opting to come back for his final season with the Hurricanes. He was projected as a potential first-round NFL draft pick if he had come out a year early.

Last season, Rolle was second on the team with two interceptions and finished sixth with 47 tackles.
