The McLennan County grand jury declined to indict a pair of redshirt freshmen Baylor football players on Wednesday in connection with an alleged sexual assault, according to a report from KWTX10 News.
Safeties Tre’von Lewis and John Arthur were not indicted after a lack of “sufficient evidence to proceed to trial,” per a statement from McLennan County district attorney Abel Reyna.
Lewis and Arthur were among four players whom Baylor football coach Matt Rhule announced in March had been suspended from the team. According to the report, the two had been suspended since November. It was reported in February that at least two football players were under investigation in connection with an alleged sexual assault involving members of the Baylor equestrian team.
According to KWTX10, the players will remain suspended as Baylor’s Title IX investigations are still open. A university spokesperson declined further comment after the grand jury decision.
Lewis was recruited by Baylor as a 3-star prospect from Houston-area Lamar High School. Arthur was recruited from Wakeland High School in the Dallas suburb of Frisco, Texas.
