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.
