Jacksonville State Reviewing After Quarterback Arrested
Jacksonville State says it's reviewing the arrest of quarterback Eli Jenkins on a misdemeanor charge of domestic violence.
University Police Chief Shawn Giddy says Jenkins was charged with third-degree domestic violence after officers answered a call about a man and woman arguing at an on-campus apartment early Wednesday.
The apartment complex is within walking distance of the police department.
Interim athletic director Greg Seitz says the university is gathering information about the incident and declined further comment.
The arrest comes just weeks after Jenkins led Jacksonville State to the NCAA's FCS championship game, which the Gamecocks lost to North Dakota State earlier this month.
Jenkins is a junior from Birmingham.
