FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - TCU senior defensive end Mike Tuaua and freshman receiver Andre Petties-Wilson have been suspended from the team after their arrests on charges of robbery-bodily injury.

According to a Fort Worth police report, Tuaua and Petties-Wilson were arrested Monday for an incident Sept. 4, when another TCU student told investigators that the two players stole a case of beer after attacking him and his friends.

The alleged incident took place the day after the third-ranked Horned Frogs opened their season with a 23-17 victory at Minnesota. Tuaua and Petties-Wilson both played in that game, but haven't played since.

Tuaua and Petties-Wilson each posted $15,000 bail and were released from Fort Worth jail Monday.

Tuaua played all 12 regular-season games last season, and started five of them. He didn't start against the Golden Gophers.

This story has been changed to correct that both played in the season opener.
