WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) -- A Purdue athletics official says
cornerback Sean Collins is suspended from the team after being
arrested outside a bar on preliminary charges of public
intoxication, resisting arrest and battery.

The Tippecanoe County Jail says the 21-year-old was arrested
early Saturday outside Where Else? bar. West Lafayette Police Lt.
Scott Fohr says Collins is accused of hitting a 22-year-old woman
who was treated and released at a hospital.

Collins was released on $10,000 bond. He's due in court Aug. 20.
Officials couldn't say whether he has an attorney and he doesn't
have a public telephone listing.

Purdue associate athletics director Tom Schott says Collins has
been suspended from the team. He says the junior joined the
Boilermakers as a walk-on in 2009 and was on the roster in 2010 and
2011.
