A standout Big Ten tight end was reportedly arrested on multiple charges on Saturday night.

Indiana junior tight end Peyton Hendershot was reportedly arrested late Saturday evening on multiple charges, according to the Bloomington Herald-Times. He was reportedly booked into Monroe (Indiana) County Jail on preliminary charges of felony residential entry along with misdemeanor charges for domestic battery, criminal mischief and criminal conversion.

Hendershot's bond was reportedly set at $2,000. Bloomington police Sgt. Ben Burns reportedly confirmed the tight end's arrest.

Indiana's football program is reportedly aware of the arrest, too. A spokesman for the Hoosiers released a brief statement.

“Indiana University Athletics is aware of the arrest of redshirt sophomore Peyton Hendershot. IU Athletics will continue to gather facts, cooperate with and monitor the legal and administrative processes, and take further action as the evolving situation warrants," the statement read.

Hendershot was one of the best tight ends in the Big Ten last season. He caught 52 passes for 622 yards and four touchdowns in 2019.

The tight end set the Indiana football record for receiving at his position and was an All-Big Ten player.

Indiana is coming off a promising 8-5 season in 2019. The Hoosiers finished the year with a loss to Tennessee in the Gator Bowl.
