(CBS 42) AUSTIN A starting freshman defensive tackle has been kicked off the University of Texas Longhorn team until further notice.

That's the decision by head football coach Mack Brown -- after Andre Jones turned himself in Friday. Jones is charged with a felony.

Friday happens to be Jones' 18th birthday. If he celebrated it, he did so behind bars

He is the fourth student-athlete on the Longhorns squad to run afoul of the law so far this summer, and Coach Brown says he's "extremely disappointed."

In High School at El Paso, Andre Jones' biography reads like a Who's Who in Athletics. He was named a first team All-American by Parade magazine. There are pictures showing Jones at Army All-American Bowl going head to head and getting tackled. He was a player in the US All American Bowl. And there's a shot of him iinking a deal to play for the Longhorns at the age of 17.

"Nicknamed 'Slick,' the #78 defensive tackle was charged and jailed for aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon.

Police say Jones and former UT player Robert Joseph robbed a 14-year old victim at these apartments -- making deadly threats and brandishing guns."

He's a wimp. He needs a gun to rob a 14 year old kid. I'd bench him too...

If he really was a big mean defensive tackle, he'd just bit**slap the kid and take his lunch money, not pull a gun.

But knowing the APD and UT politics... it will be pled down to "disorderly conduct" and "Slick" will be back on the team in time for the Rice game...

Not an alum, but the curious way a million dollars worth of "stuff" disapears from the campus every year makes me agree. How that stuff "walks" off on it's own is a mistery to everone except the ones behind the scenes.

I never really get why athletes, despite being set whether in terms of opportunities or finances, have to do these stupid things.

They're never held accountable or to the same standard as others, so they feel the rules don't apply to them. Hell even in high school if you can ball you don't even have to know how to read......seriously. I knew a guy that was practically illiterate that was able to graduate, becuase he could "play". Thats Texas football.... :fans:

That might make sense if Vince Young didn't come out his junior year.
