Tyler Higbee of Western Kentucky, who’s considered one of the top tight ends in the 2016 NFL Draft, is facing multiple charges after an early Sunday morning arrest in Bowling Green, Ky.

Zach Greenwell of the Bowling Green Daily News reported that Higbee, 23, was charged with second degree assault, second degree evading police and alcohol intoxication in a public place.

He was booked at 2:41 a.m. Sunday, less than three weeks before the draft, and now he’ll have a bunch of questions to answer for NFL evaluators.

The 6-foot-6 Higbee was No. 76 on last week’s Rotoworld draft prospect rankings. He caught 48 passes for 563 yards and eight touchdowns as a senior despite missing five games due to injury.
