Baylor safety Dixon arrested for alleged assault

Dixon was released on Thursday afternoon after posting $1,500 bond.
Dixon allegedly assaulted a 21-year-old man last week who he believed had broken into his home several months ago.
Dixon reportedly punched the victim several times in the face when the man laughingly denied the allegation.
Waco Police Sgt. Patrick Swanton told KWTX that the victim was not hospitalized, but suffered facial injuries. He reportedly waited until the next day to contact police because of feared retribution.
Dixon "admitted to this assault," according to the arrest affidavit.
Baylor's associate athletic director for communications issued a short statement on Friday."We're aware of the situation and it will be handled internally as is our practice."
