Report: Two TCU players arrested on robbery charges: TCU Horned Frogs Football, Update, 11:55 a.m. Tuesday: Mike Tuaua and Andre Petties-Wilson both posted $15,000 bail via a bond Monday, according to the Tarrant County Sherriff’s Office.

Original story: TCU senior defensive end Mike Tuaua and redshirt freshman Andre Petties-Wilson were arrested Monday on felony robbery charges, Fort Worth police said in a statement.

The two were jailed on the charge of robbing three male students around 11:30 p.m. on Sept. 4., as well as stealing a case of Keystone Light.

A TCU spokesman confirmed that both Tuaua and Petties-Wilson have been suspended from the football program due to a violation of team rules.

In the statement, the students told the police that they were beaten outside a party and their case of beer was taken. One student told the police that after he saw three suspects “kicking and punching” another student while that student was “laying on the ground in the fetal position.”

One was sent to a hospital with minor injuries and another was treated at the scene.

Police said one of the attackers was described as an “Asian-pacific male with big hair,” according to an affidavit.

Tuaua told police, according to the affidavit, he and Petties-Wilson were attending a party the night of the incident. When leaving, Tuaua told police that Petties-Wilson was “surrounded by three males.” Tuaua said he punched one of the three to get them off Petties-Wilson before the two ran away.

The following comes from the affidavit from the police officer who conducted the interview with Tuaua.

“I pointed out the distinct physical difference between Petties-Wilson and the victims, who are substantially physically smaller and asked him to explain why he felt Petties-Wilson was in danger. Tuaua did not answer that question.”

The affidavit also pointed out that an officer went to Tuaua’s residence and found multiple cans of Keystone Light in his backyard after the defensive end told the police that he didn’t drink Keystone Light.
