A Tulane running back faces charges of simple battery and robbery in Orleans Parish.
Court records show that 21-year-old Rob Kelley was arrested on August 4. He posted a $10,000 bond at his first court appearance that same day.
According to our partners at NOLA.com/The Times Picayune, authorities saw Kelley hit a student several times before taking his bicycle.
Tulane will open their season Thursday in Tulsa without the senior running back.
The school released a statement confirming Kelley's suspension, but did not offer further explanation.
The statement said:
"Federal law prohibits the University from disclosing any disciplinary action regarding his or her enrollment in the university."
