Florida State wide receiver Greg Dent was arrested Sunday night on a sexual assault charge, the Orlando Sentinel reports.

The Leon County Sheriff’s Office online booking detail indicated Dent was arrested by Tallahassee police and was being held in Leon County jail late Sunday night. The Sentinel also reported that Dent’s first court appearance was set for Monday morning.

According to county records, Dent used no physical force or violence to cause injury to the victim. Per Florida statute, his charge is considered a second-degree felony.

His police report can be seen here, via Warchant.com.

Heading into his senior season, Dent was expected to be a strong contributor and a likely starter for the Seminoles’ receiving corps. He was Florida State’s fifth-leading receiver in 2012, hauling in 27 catches for 355 yards and two touchdowns. Dent was praised by coach Jimbo Fisher during spring workouts.

If Florida State is without Dent for any portion of the season, its roster is still deep at receiver, headlined by junior Rashad Greene (57 catches, 741 yards, six touchdowns). Sophomore Kelvin Benjamin and senior Kenny Shaw also return after seeing plenty of playing time last year.
