Robert Mahone, a redshirt senior, is facing a misdemeanor charge, according to the Ada County Sheriff’s Office. A team spokesperson confirmed Monday evening that the football player has been suspended from all team activities.

At around 5:15 p.m. Monday, officers were dispatched to a home near North Allumbaugh Street and West Fairview Avenue after being notified of a possible domestic disturbance and that a child was present, according to a Boise Police Department spokesperson.

Officers arrived and located a suspect, identified by authorities as Mahone. After an investigation, police arrested Mahone on a misdemeanor domestic battery charge. He was booked into the Ada County Jail at around 6:30 p.m.

Mahone appeared in front of Magistrate Judge Adam Kimball on Tuesday afternoon via video call from the Ada County Jail. Mahone allegedly was a part of a verbal altercation that turned physical, according to Janice Beller, deputy city attorney for the Boise City Prosecutor’s Office.

Beller alleged during the Tuesday hearing that Mahone pushed the victim into a closet before forcefully pushing the same person to the ground and damaging an item in the home. Beller also alleged that there is a “history of unreported violence” between Mahone and the victim, and it was reported in a 911 call made to police that Mahone allegedly has a handgun.

Kimball allowed Mahone to be released on his own recognizance, but ordered a no-contact order be put in place between Mahone and the vicitm in the case. It was not immediately clear when he will be released from jail custody, but Mahone’s next court date is scheduled for a pre-trial conference on Sept. 9.

Last season, Mahone turned himself into police over an unpaid speeding ticket but faced no discipline from the team.

His daughter, Jorja, was born in July 2019. Mahone is originally from Atlanta.

Mahone, who played his high school ball in Prosper, Texas, appeared in 13 games and made seven starts last fall for Boise State. He has appeared in 39 games since 2017.

Peyton Hendershot, Indiana football player, arrested on multiple charges

Peyton Hendershot Fulmer CupBloomington police arrested Indiana University tight end Peyton Hendershot late Saturday night on multiple charges after an incident with a former girlfriend.

Hendershot, who is 20 and from Indianapolis, was booked into Monroe County Jail at 11:25 p.m. on preliminary charges of felony residential entry, as well as three misdemeanors: domestic battery, criminal mischief and criminal conversion.

His bond was set at $2,500. Because of the domestic battery charge, Hendershot will remain jailed 24 hours before being able to bond out.

A Bloomington Police Department news release says Hendershot went to a former girlfriend’s apartment in the 2300 block of South Brandon Court and entered the apartment without permission, accusing the woman of infidelity. He reportedly took her cell phone from her to look at calls and texts and when she tried to retrieve the phone, Hendershot — who is 6-foot-4 — “grabbed her by the neck and shoved her against the wall.”

She said Hendershot threw her phone into the kitchen as he left the apartment, breaking the screen. She called 911, and police then went to Hendershot’s residence and arrested him there.

The woman told police Hendershot had done her laundry earlier in the day and that he was angry when she did not answer the door when he returned it Saturday night. She called to apologize and said she was asleep and did not hear him knocking. She said he then returned and entered her apartment.

The university athletics department released the following statement:

“Indiana University Athletics is aware of the arrest of redshirt sophomore Peyton Hendershot,” a department spokesperson said. “IU Athletics will continue to gather facts, cooperate with and monitor the legal and administrative processes, and take further action as the evolving situation warrants.”

Hendershot is coming off of an All-Big Ten season where he set the program’s receiving records for a tight end. He caught 52 passes for 622 yards and four touchdowns.
