According to the KBTX in Texas, Texas A&M defensive lineman Zaycoven Henderson is facing multiple felony charges after being arrested on Sunday morning.

Per the report, Henderson was arrested after he allegedly pointed a rifle at multiple people and
“threatened to kill them.” Henderson reportedly attempted to hide the weapon in a nearby area once police arrived, but the weapon was found and Henderson was taken into custody.

Henderson is facing charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, tampering with evidence, and possession of marijuana. The first two charges are felonies, and the Dallas Morning News is reporting that Henderson could be facing up to 20 years in prison if convicted of the crimes.

Another man at the scene with Henderson was also cited for marijuana possession.

The Morning News also reports that Texas A&M has suspended Henderson indefinitely. A&M is scheduled to play Wake Forest in the Belk Bowl.

Henderson, a senior, has played in 47 games in his four years in College Station, including starting 11 of A&M’s 12 games in 2017. The 300-pound defensive lineman has 35 total tackles (5.0 TFL) and 2.5 sacks this year.
