Lamar Football Player to Appear in Court Today
Lamar University football player Adren Dorsey is scheduled to appear in Brazos County court for an arraignment hearing at 8:30 a.m. Thursday after an April arrest.
Police arrested Dorsey after a physical altercation with an ex-girlfriend outside the Texas A&M student recreation center April 13.
Dorsey transferred to Lamar after A&M head coach Mike Sherman released Dorsey following the arrest. Police arrested Dorsey for family-violence assault charges, according to the Brazos County justice Web site.
Police also arrested Dorsey for not having a driver’s license and liability insurance.
Dorsey, a 6-foot-2, 305-pound defensive lineman, competed for playing time during A&M’s spring practices. He played three games in 2009 as a redshirt freshman. Dorsey played high school football at Tyler John Tyler.
Dorsey is a son to former Lamar football player Floyd Dorsey, a running back.
Dorsey is among four players from bowl division schools at Lamar for the 2010 season. A fifth player, offensive lineman Ari Tatum, is academically ineligible for the season, Lamar coach Ray Woodard said Tuesday. Tatum planned to transfer from the University of Houston.
The other three bowl division transfers are tight end Billy Chavis (A&M), linebacker/defensive end Jacody Coleman (Iowa) and linebacker/safety Jordan Garrett (Tulane).
