On the eve of fall camp, Colorado sophomore cornerback Anthony Julmisse was accused of pushing a woman down a stairwell. Julmisse was arrested on allegations of assault, harassment and domestic violence, and has since been suspended indefinitely.
“We will determine any further disciplinary action after receiving more information,” Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre said in a statement. “I am very troubled by these allegations, as they do not represent the values of our university and our football program.”
The approaching football season notwithstanding, the timing of the allegations comes in the wake of MacIntyre being ordered to make a $100,000 donation to a domestic violence support group after the football program failed to report domestic violence allegations against former coach Joe Tumpkin.
Julmisse’s next court date has been set to Sept. 1 at 8:30 a.m. According to ESPN, the woman, who claims to have been in a relationship with Julmisse, “had no visible injuries and did not want to press charges, however Colorado law requires police to take action in domestic violence cases.”
As a freshman during Colorado’s breakout 2016 season, Julmisse played in all 14 games, including the Alamo Bowl, a 38-8 loss to Oklahoma State. Julmisse’s role is an expansive one, as he played both offense and defense, returned kicks and lined up on special teams.
Colorado opened camp on Friday. The timetable of Julmisse’s return is yet to be seen.
