Update: Indiana tight end Peyton Hendershot arrested on multiple charges following incident with ex-girlfriend
This story has been updated from the original post, as new information has surfaced regarding the incident.
Indiana tight end Peyton Hendershot was arrested late Saturday night by Bloomington police, according to a report from Jon Blau of the Bloomington Herald-Times.
Hendershot was reportedly booked into Monroe Country Jail on preliminary charges of felony residential entry, along with misdemeanors for domestic battery, criminal mischief and criminal conversion, following an incident with a former girlfriend.
Per the Herald-Times, Hendershot went to an ex-girlfriend’s apartment and entered without permission. He allegedly took her cellphone to review calls and texts. When the woman attempted to grab the phone, Hendershot “grabbed her by the neck and shoved her against the wall.”
The woman said she called police and Hendershot was arrested at his residence.
A spokesman from Indiana Athletics released a statement on the matter.
“Indiana University Athletics is aware of the arrest of redshirt sophomore Peyton Hendershot,” the spokesman 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.”
Bond was set at $2,500 for Hendershot, according to the report.
Hendershot was one of Indiana’s primary targets in the passing game last season, hauling in 52 passes for 622 yards and four touchdowns. Those totals were good enough for second-best on the team last fall in each category.
Hendershot took a huge step up from the 2017 season, when he totaled 15 receptions for 163 yards and two touchdown catches.
