Malik Demby Fulmer CupMalik Demby, a former New Mexico State football player is accused of aggravated assault, according to inmate booking records.

Malik Demby, who was a defensive back in the 2018 season, was arrested on Saturday night in east Las Cruces.

A spokesman for NMSU’s athletic department confirmed Demby exhausted his eligibility to play after his fourth year with the team. That means he was no longer an NMSU football player during the time of his arrest.

In October 2017, Demby addressed the media before NMSU beat Texas State. It was a historic season when NMSU won the Arizona Bowl, breaking the longest bowl game drought in the country at the time.

Demby was charged with aggravated assault against a household member with a deadly weapon and false imprisonment. The circumstances surrounding his arrest are not yet known.

Maxwell Janes, Minnesota football player arrested after allegedly punching police officer

Maxwell Janes Fulmer Cup

Maxwell Janes, a former Minnesota Gophers football player was arrested last Friday after police say he punched an officer. According to a spokesperson for the university, Maxwell Timothy Janes was dismissed from the team after university officials learned about the incident.

According to the criminal complaint, Minneapolis police officers were dispatched to the Main Post Office near 1st Street S. and Hennepin Avenue at about 12:39 a.m. on Feb. 8 for a welfare check.

While en route to the post office, officers were informed that the individual was attempting to get into the post office and was substantially underdressed for the cold weather, the complaint says.

The complaint says after officers arrived, the individual, later identified as Janes, gained access to a loading dock when a garage door opened. Officers were able to stop him, and noticed he appeared to be intoxicated.

The complaint says officers put Janes in their squad car to remove him from the cold conditions, but he then told officers he was about to vomit. After police opened the door to allow him to vomit if he needed to, Janes got out of the car and punched an officer in the face, and then actively fought with officers, the complaint says.

Officers eventually restrained him and took him to jail.

He’s being charged with fourth degree assault of a peace officer, which caused demonstrable bodily harm, and was booked in the Hennepin County Jail. He has since been released on bail.

As a freshman last season, Janes played in all 13 games on special teams for the Gophers. He previously attended Mounds View High School.

Maurice Washington Faces ‘Revenge Porn’, Child Porn Charges

Maurice Washington Fulmer Cup

Maurice Washington, a running back for the University of Nebraska, faces criminal charges under California’s relatively new “revenge porn” law in connection to a video of a 15-year-old Bay Area teen allegedly being sexually assaulted, according to court records obtained by NBC Bay Area’s Investigative Unit.

San Jose native Maurice Washington III did not record the video and is not part of the alleged assault involving his ex-girlfriend, who is now 18, and two former classmates. But Washington is accused of keeping the video on his phone and sending it to the victim last March, along with the message, “Remember this hoe [sic].”

Washington, who dated the victim during his freshman year at The King’s Academy High School in Sunnyvale, is being charged under the “Revenge Porn” law because he’s accused of sending the video to inflict emotional damage on the victim. Because the victim was 15 when the video was recorded, he’s also being charged with posession of child pornography, a felony.

“I tried so hard to forget it, and then to have someone just throw it back in my face like that and taunt me with it was just so evil,” Taylor, the victim, told NBC Bay Area on the condition we not use her last name. “Maybe that’s the wrong word to use, but I felt like it was evil, like why would you ever want somebody to feel that pain that I felt that day?”
