UConn football tight end Sean McQuillan was arrested April 17 and charged with assault in the second degree and disorderly conduct, according to a UConn police report.
UConn Police responded to the Celeron Square Apartment complex for a reported fight in progress. Upon investigation, it was determined that McQuillan had assaulted another individual, resulting in significant facial injuries to the victim, according to the police report.
According to a source, it was McQuillan’s roommate whom he assaulted.
McQuillan was released on a $500 non-surety bond and his court date was April 20.
“The athletic department is aware of the situation and we will wait for the judicial process to take its full course. In the meantime, Sean has a responsibility to finish out the semester academically,” Mike Enright, Senior Associate Director of Athletics/Communications, said.
During the 2014 season, McQuillan started 11 games for the Huskies. He caught 16 passes for 158 yards and a touchdown, including a 21-yard score against Army Nov. 8.
Over his career, McQuillan has 41 receptions for 354 yards and two touchdowns. McQuillan redshirted in 2011 and will play his last season as a redshirt senior in 2015.
