Texas A&M starting defensive tackle Zaycoven Henderson was arrested on multiple felony charges early Sunday morning after police said he pointed a gun at residents of a College Station apartment complex and threatened to kill them, according to court records.
Henderson was arrested and charged with three counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, one count of tampering with evidence and possession of less than two ounces of marijuana. An athletic department official said Henderson is suspended indefinitely per department policy.
Police say that at about 2:30 a.m. they received the deadly conduct call from the Campus Village Apartments, and stopped Henderson, 23, and Terry Lechler Florez Jr., 24, as they were leaving the complex off F.M. 2818.
Henderson is accused of pointing a rifle at one person and threatening to kill two others, the documents state. The gun that matched the description given by the victims had been discarded by Henderson in a nearby wooded area, authorities said.
Florez was also charged with possession of less than two ounces of marijuana.
Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is a second-degree felony punishable by up to 20 years in prison and could carry a fine not to exceed $10,000. Tampering with evidence is a third-degree felony punishable by up to 10 years in prison and a fine not to exceed $10,000.
Possession of two ounces of less of marijuana in Texas is a Class B misdemeanor offense, with penalties of up to 180 days in jail and fines not to exceed $2,000.
