Suspended Baylor player arrested on assault charge

Travon Blanchard The Fulmer Cup

An affidavit released Wednesday details an incident that led to the arrest of a suspended Baylor University football standout.

Defensive back Travon Blanchard, 22, is free on $6,000 bond after his arrest Tuesday evening on a misdemeanor assault/family violence charge stemming from the incident in February in which a woman said she was struck and pushed to the ground during an argument.

Baylor police arrested Blanchard on the Fort Bend County warrant at around 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at his duplex in the 2200 block of South University Parks Drive near the campus.

The warrant stems from an incident on Feb. 4 at a Pappadeaux restaurant in Stafford where Blanchard and the woman, identified as his girlfriend, got into an argument and tussled over her car keys.

The initial police report of the incident said Blanchard “began verbally abusing the applicant”, and followed her as she tried to leave the restaurant and then grabbed her hand in an attempt to take her car keys, breaking her cutting the finger “to the point where she was unable to have it stitched.”
