A new report has revealed a college football player was arrested leaving his game this past weekend.

Ryan Travis McCollum, a sophomore offensive lineman at Texas A&M, was reportedly arrested while leaving the Aggies' win over UL-Monroe on Saturday night.

KBTX has the full details:

A Texas A&M football player was arrested Saturday on charges related to reckless driving on campus following the game against ULM.

Ryan Travis McCollum, 20, of Spring, is also accused of evading a police officer on a bicycle who attempted to stop the sophomore offensive lineman. A Texas A&M police officer observed McCollum in a 2012 Ford pickup truck driving recklessly southbound on Throckmorton Street near Short Street.

The officer says McCollum almost struck another vehicle while driving through an area with pedestrians, then accelerated rapidly around the vehicle. As the officer attempted to catch up to the truck, employees working traffic control told the officer the truck also traveled recklessly around them on Throckmorton near Lewis Street.

The officer says he finally caught up to McCollum in traffic at the intersection of Throckmorton at George Bush Drive and activated his lights and bike horns, but the officer said McCollum accelerated quickly onto George Bush Drive after the light turned green.

McCollum was reportedly released on bail Sunday morning.

Texas A&M is set to play at No. 1 Alabama on Saturday.
