Devonte Fields, a defensive end at TCU, was reportedly attacked and robbed during an incident at his off-campus home on Tuesday. TCU360.com obtained the police report, which details the dangerous-sounding attack. Fields, the 2012 AP Big XII Defensive Player of the Year, looks like he was lucky to avoid serious harm during the daytime altercation.
The report said that Fields went outside to start his car, and then returned to his house when three suspects came up behind him. One of the suspects hit Fields on the top of the head with a black semi-automatic pistol and pushed him into his house.
Two of the three suspects began to assault Fields with their fists, while the third suspect stole items including a cellphone and an Xbox video game system, according to the report.
The struggle between Fields and the suspects ended up on the driveway. One of the suspects then pointed a semi-automatic pistol at Fields and told him he was going to kill him, according to the report.
The report said Fields grabbed the right forearm of one of the suspects and five shots were fired into the air.
Fields reportedly declined to press charges when Fort Worth police showed up at his home.
