Louisville signee Sharieff Rhaheed-Muhammad faces a charge of felony lewd behavior with a minor after being arrested Monday in his hometown of Fort Pierce, Fla., TCPalm.com reported Tuesday.

Fort Pierce law enforcement officials stated they had been investigating the 17-year-old Rhaheed-Muhammad since October and determined with a "99.99 percent probability" that he had impregnated a 14-year-old girl, who later had an abortion. CBS12 in West Palm Beach reported the girl was Rhaheed-Muhammad's cousin.

Rhaheed-Muhammad was released from juvenile detention Tuesday.

Per the Louisville Courier-Journal, a Louisville spokesperson said coach Bobby Petrino was aware of the issue but would not comment on it.

Rhaheed-Muhammad was a three-star linebacker recruit who chose to sign with the Cardinals in February over offers from Arkansas, Missouri and Michigan State.
