Miami Star Freshman Dewan Huell Tweets, Deletes Apology After Being Arrested For Battery

Dewan Huell, a star freshman basketball player for Miami, was arrested earlier this week for battery.

Dewan Huell, according to a police report obtained by Andy Slater of WINZ, was allegedly involved in an altercation in his ex-girlfriend's dorm room. Here's more:

According to an exclusively-obtained police report, Huell walked into his ex-girlfriend's dorm room at FIU uninvited. He found her hiding in the closet with another man. 

Police say Huell grabbed the man by his shirt and dragged him out of the room, which left the man with scratches on his chest and neck.

Friday morning, Huell tweeted, then deleted a note that contains both an apology and an accusation against the media. We were able to screenshot the tweet:

Huell, who is a four-star recruit out of Miami, Florida, is one of the best players the Hurricanes have ever brought to campus. It remains to be seen whether this incident will affect his playing status.
