TCU defensive lineman charged with Class A misdemeanor
A TCU defensive end was accused of chasing two students into the P.E. Clark hall and assaulting them, according to an arrest warrant affidavit.
Tipa Galeai, 20, was charged at the end of January with a Class A misdemeanor, assault causing bodily injury, according to Tarrant County court records.
According to a TCU police report, the incident occurred around 2 a.m. on Jan. 21.
Two male students told police they were near the intersection of Stadium and Bellaire drives when Galeai appeared “angry and extremely intoxicated,” witness told police. He began to chase the two students toward P.E. Clark hall where he punched both students, the report said.
Both students opted not to receive medical attention, and one of the two students decided not to pursue charges against Galaei. A resident assistant witnessed part of the assault, according to the report.
TCU police put out an arrest warrant for Galeai on Jan. 24, and interviewed him the following day. Galeai went to the Tarrant County Jail on Jan. 26 and was released on a $5,000 bond the same day, per court records.Read More
