COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M receiver Nick Rhodes has been accused of punching his roommate and hitting him with a guitar after the man asked him for rent money.

Rhodes, a redshirt freshman from Brownwood, was arrested on Thursday and charged with Class A assault, a misdemeanor. He posted $7,000 bond on Friday afternoon.

The roommate suffered several scratches and cuts, according to a College Station police report, but he declined medical treatment.

Rhodes refused to come out of his room when police arrived and officers kicked in the door to arrest him. Police Sgt. Mike Dean said Rhodes was arrested without incident.

Nine Texas A&M football players and one recruit have been arrested since November.
