WACO -- Baylor University's defensive end is now in jail for a sexual assault that allegedly happened at a party two weeks ago.

Tevin Elliott, 20, was indefinitely suspended from the football team on Friday and arrested Monday for sexual assault charges.

The incident occurred on April 15th and Elliot is innocent until proven guilty, but those we spoke with at Baylor say being a student athlete has intensified the attention on Elliott.

"Being an athlete you have like signed up to be in the spotlight honestly. And you have to live more above reproach when you are on an athletic team because everything you do is going to be looked at in more intensity."

Elliott did not participate in spring workouts due to a knee injury.

His suspension from the Baylor Football team is indefinite.
