Texas RB James Henry arrested, 6th Longhorns player in three months

Freshman running back for the Texas Longhorns James Henry became the sixth member of the team to be arrested since June, after booked on Monday.

Texas RB James Henry arrested, 6th Longhorns player in three months Discipline issues are eroding the Texas Longhorns (3-0), becoming even more obvious after the running back James Henry was arrested on Monday on two felony counts of obstruction and tampering with evidence. Henry was booked into Travis County Jail with a bond of $30,000 and was released on Tuesday. James Henry is also accused of beating up one of the victims of a July home invasion that allegedly involved two other players, Andre Jones and Robert Joseph. His arrest made him the sixth player from the college team to be booked since June. The obstruction and tampering charges stem from the police belief that James Henry disposed of a backpack containing items stolen in the home invasion.

 Longhorns coach Mack Brown said James Henry was suspended indefinitely from the team, joining the like of safety Tyrell Gatewood (drug charges) and TD Andre Jones, who is already charged with aggravated robbery with a deadly weapon in the James Henry case. Robert Joseph had already left the Longhorns before his July arrest, because of an earlier incident.

 Mack Brown said in front of reporters on Tuesday: "When someone is accused of trouble or has trouble, it is devastating to me personally. It's really all on me. It's on me alone. I'm responsible for making all the final decisions at the football office at the University of Texas. It's obvious I need to be more accountable and do a better job. I've got to go back and look at everything I'm doing. Twenty-three years as a head coach, I've dealt with more in six months than I have in 23 years."

 The Texas Longhorns are favorite to win the Saturday college football game against the visiting Rice Owls (0-3). The betting site Bookmaker has published odds on the Longhorns -1500 ( you have to bet 1,500 to win 100) and the Owls have the betting odds on winning the game posted at +750 (you get 750 for every 100 bet).
