STATESBORO — Georgia Southern fullback Dominique Swope, a former Sequoyah High School standout, was arrested and charged with aggravated battery, the Statesboro Herald reported Tuesday.

According to the Herald, Swope, 20, of Woodstock, turned himself in at 11 p.m. Monday at the Bulloch County Sheriff’s Office after a warrant had been issued for his arrest.

Statesboro Public Safety director Wendell Turner said in a news release that Swope was involved in an altercation at a Statesboro apartment complex, which resulted in Cameron Zaquan Lewis suffering “serious head trauma.”

Swope has been removed from Georgia Southern’s roster, according to a statement from athletic spokesman Barrett Gilham, with Swope’s potential return to the team to be “determined once he goes through the legal process and there is a better understanding of his involvement with this incident from a legal perspective.”

Swope, who graduated from Buford High School after playing his first three seasons at Sequoyah, missed most of the 2013 season after suffering a shoulder injury. He rushed for more than 1,000 yards in each of his freshman and sophomore seasons.
