September 24, 2012

CHAPEL HILL — A walk-on football player at North Carolina has been suspended after he was arrested and charged with assault.

Chapel Hill police arrested 18-year-old Nicholas Apostolos Weiler early Sunday after an officer reported that he saw Weiler hit a person in the face.

Weiler is a freshman punter. He has not played this season.

Weiler is charged with felony assault afflicting injury and four misdemeanors: simple assault, resisting arrest, underage possession of alcohol and possession of a fake ID.

An arrest report accuses him walking away after police approached him.

North Carolina athletics spokesman Kevin Best says Weiler has been suspended indefinitely from all team-related activities. It was not clear if he has a lawyer.
