The Austin American-Statesman was able to get its hands on the arrest warrant for Texas safety Christian Scott, and it turns out that his arrest stems from his treatment of the woman who was repossessing his car. Scott was arrested for assault causing bodily harm on Monday afternoon in Austin, and suspended indefinitely by the team.

Jeanne Somers Doyle was in the process of repossessing Scott's car when she was blocked by another car while at Scott's apartment complex. Scott then got out of the car that was blocking Doyle, approached her in the car while screaming profanities at her. According to the police report, Doyle recognized Scott because she had repossessed his car last year. As Scott reached the car, he pulled Doyle from it and then threw her to the ground.

Scott then got into the car and fled the scene before being arrested at a nearby gas station.

Obviously if this is true, Scott's future as a Longhorn doesn't look good. I can understand the frustration of seeing your car getting taken away, and how you would want to stop the person doing it, but to attack that person -- particularly when it's a woman -- because you didn't make your car payments isn't the right way to go about things.

Doyle was just doing her job because Scott didn't.

Another piece of garbage....Get him out of football now before he ends up in the NFL...My god being a ganster or a punk is not cool...It is the easy way out and makes your family & your race look very bad.   Every week it is another one....it disgusts me. I can say I served my country to protect the rights of those who do the right thing and look to make our world better....Not these people.. disgusting just disgusting.

The real question should be why did the university quit making the payments?

The article states that, " I can understand the frustration of seeing your car getting taken away, and how you would want to stop the person doing it"

I can't understand it. It is not like Scott didn't know he wasn't making car payments. I mean, how many months do you have to fall behind on your car payments before they have a repo company take it from you? Three, six, nine, 12? I am sure he had many notices that he was behind on his payments and probably another telling him that the car would be repo'd. This is just some dumb kid who thinks he is above following the rules because he plays football.

The car does not belong to you, it belongs to the bank until you pay it off. The bank is not taking your car from you. The bank is taking back the property that they own that you have not paid for.

If people weren't so stupid, they probably would not react in this way.

Too bad he didn't take advantage of the free education they were offering him for playing football there. Without an education, even the players that make bank in the NFL are not set for life. A lot of them are broke when they retire or within five years of retiring.

I'm thinkin Scott may have more to worry about than playing time.  Jail time is a possibility for a crime like this
