UNC freshman football player Donte Paige-Moss was charged with misdemeanor simple assault after getting into a dorm-room fight with a teammate in July, according to UNC Public Safety.
The incident occurred at Horton Hall on July 16. According to a copy of the UNC Public Safety report, Paige-Moss punched teammate Hunter Furr twice in the nose. Furr, a running back from Lewisville, was treated at UNC Hospitals for possible injuries.
Paige-Moss, from Pollocksville, was arrested on July 17 by campus police and charged with a misdemeanor simple assault.
Paige-Moss, ranked as the eighth-best prospect in the country and the top defensive end by Scout.com, is scheduled to appear in Orange County court on Aug. 20.
UNC coach Butch Davis called the altercation a "very unfortunate situation" and said the two freshmen are "very, very good friends."
"We've talked about it to both of the players," Davis said. "We've already handled it internally."
