According to Friday's KTVU News, a Cal football player is behind bars for allegedly kicking a dog and breaking another student's jaw at a fraternity party.

Damariay Drew, a 20-year-old UC Berkeley sophomore, was arrested on Thursday afternoon after an unidentified victim told the police that Drew had punched him several times in the face and kicked his dog, a 20-pound Jack Russell terrier mix.

The victim was severely injured, suffering a broken jaw; he may require reconstructive surgery.

According to Mercury News, Drew has been indefinitely suspended from the football team pending further investigation. The athletic department stated:

We are aware of the incident involving Damariay Drew. We are tracking the case and fully cooperating with the Berkeley Police Department in its investigation,"

On Friday, Drew, who is facing felony charges, was booked into the Berkeley city jail on $100,000 bail - he is not expected to be released until Monday. The victim, whose jaw is now wired shut, has been released from the hospital - no word on the condition of his dog.
