Florida Atlantic’s Kalib Woods accused of battery, suspended from team

After leading the team in receptions and receiving yards last year, Florida Atlantic wide receiver was indefinitely suspended from the team Wednesday after he was arrested Tuesday for an alleged assault in early January.

According to FAU Police records, the incident happened at 2 a.m. on January 13 at a party at The Venue on West Camino Real in Boca Raton. Woods and several others allegedly assaulted FAU students Stephan Reese and Adrian Muckle due to a foul Muckle committed in a basketball game about a year ago, according to the report.

Muckle said in a testimony to police that Woods had allegedly said both in person and over social media that he was going to assault him at the party. Reese received a broken jaw from a punch by Woods that was mean for Muckle, while Muckle said later discovered he had internal bleeding due to the attack, according to the report.

Woods was arrested on Tuesday around 11 a.m. on two battery charges (One simple, one felony) and later that day was kicked off the team.

“We are aware of the matter with Kalib Woods,” an FAU spokesperson said to Matthew DeFranks of the Sun Sentinel. “He was suspended from the team on Tuesday and will remain suspended pending the outcome of the charges.”

As a All-Conference USA honorable mention, Woods recorded 68 receptions, 934 yards of receiving and a touchdown while starting all 12 games for the Owls. He was working with the first team before his arrest.

According to his bond paperwork, Woods can attend school and school-related activities still, but cannot come into contact with the victims, witnesses, use social media or weapons in that time. His arraignment is on June 27.
