Miami’s incoming McDonald’s All-American Dewan Huell was arrested for battery on Tuesday.

According to a police report obtained by WINZ’s Andy Slater, Huell walked uninvited into the dorm room of his ex-girlfriend, who attends Florida International. He found her in the closet with another man, according to the report, and allegedly dragged him out of the room by his shirt and left him with scratches on his neck and face.

“I am aware of the reported incident involving Dewan Huell last night and we are still gathering information,” athletic director Blake James said in a statement. “I have very high expectations for all of our student-athletes, as I know Coach Larrañaga does for his team, and any misconduct will be addressed.”

Huell was a top 30 prospect in the Class of 2016 and a key piece for the Hurricanes heading into the season.
