A Washington State University football player has now been arrested twice since early February, this time for felony assault for allegedly hitting a woman. The latest case began around midnight on Saturday March second during an event inside the Compton Union Building on campus. WSU Police responded to a report that a man had assaulted a man and woman during an argument. The female victim was suffering concussion like symptoms and went by private vehicle to Pullman Regional Hospital. The male victim suffered minor injuries from allegedly being hit in the face. After several days of investigation WSU Police were able to identify 18 year old Cougar cornerback Daquawn Brown as their suspect. Brown was interviewed by officers on Friday before being arrested for felony second degree assault and misdemeanor assault. The Los Angeles native was booked into the Whitman County Jail. This marked Brown’s second arrest in a month. He was taken into custody by Pullman Police on February second for allegedly driving without a license. Brown wasn’t the only Cougar football player dealing with the authorities on Friday. Defensive tackle Austin Brown was taken into custody Friday night by Pullman Police for misdemeanor theft for allegedly stealing 50 dollars worth of merchandise from Wal-M
