CBKB: New Mexico State player arrested in battery case


Associated Press

LAS CRUCES, N.M. New Mexico State University guard Jahmar Young is in trouble with the law again.

Young was charged Sunday by Las Cruces police with battery on a peace officer. Details of the incident were not immediately available.

The 23-year-old Young was booked into the Dona Ana County Detention Center and released on bond.

Young was convicted in 2008 of battery and assault after an on-campus incident in which he was accused of exposing himself to a woman in campus housing the previous year. He accepted a plea deal that allowed him to avoid jail time.

The deal included a one-year deferred sentence, unsupervised probation, 15 hours of community service and a sexual harassment awareness course.
