Andres Garcia Dismissed From ASU Football, Onyeali Being Investigated For Separate Incident

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

Todd Graham seems to have his hands full lately with Andres Garcia and Junior Onyeali both allegedly being involved in off-the-field incidents.

Arizona State defensive back Andres Garcia has been dismissed from the team after being arrested on two counts of sexual assault and one count of domestic violence stemming from an incident this past weekend, according to the local CBS affiliate.

The Tempe Police Department has shared that Garcia got involved in a verbal argument with "a 21-year-old female acquaintance" early Friday. Their squabble then escalated to a point in which Garcia allegedly knocked the female unconscious by shoving her backwards into a wall. According to the police, Garcia helped take the victim home once she regained consciousness but then allegedly sexually assaulted her once they were alone.

Clearly these are some pretty serious allegations so it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Todd Graham and company wasn't willing to wait around to see how this plays out. Garcia, a senior walk on, joined the team last season and saw limited action on special teams.

Sadly, after a relatively transgression-free first season, Graham is now dealing with a recent wave of misconduct as defensive end Junior Onyeali is also facing criminal charges for a separate incident involving the mistreatment of a woman. According to Tempe Police, Onyeali allegedly smashed in his girlfriend's window after a fight last month.

Onyeali has not been arrested at this point but the university has said they are aware of the situation and "have engaged campus resources to review," according to Fox Sports' Tyler Lockman. So although Onyeali isn't currently suspended, there could still be some repercussions down the road.
