Another Former Baylor Football Player Arrested On Sexual Assault Charges
Former Baylor University football player Shamycheal Chatman was arrested in Houston on Thursday on charges of sexual assault in connection with an alleged gang rape.
Chatman and his former teammate Tre’Von Armstead, who was arrested Wednesday, have now both been indicted for sexually assaulting the same women in April 2013, according to the Waco Tribune-Hearald.
The victim did not file charges at the time of the assault and Baylor did not begin an investigate into the incident until September 2015. The incident involving Chatman and Armstead is just one of the alleged 52 acts of rape by 31 players in the widespread scandal.

Armstead was kicked off the football team in 2015 for unspecified team rules violation. Chatman transferred to play the 2016 season at Sam Houston State University for his senior year.
The woman who claims she was “brutally gang raped” by Chatman and Armstead is suing Baylor University for Title IX violations and negligence claiming they failed to take proper action regarding sexual assault claims.
The unnamed victim’s allegations against Chatman and Armstead are at the center of the much larger scandal that has been exposed over the past two years.
