STARK COUNTY, OH (WOIO) -

The starting quarterback for the University of Mount Union may miss Saturday's game after being arrested this week.

D'Angelo Fulford, of Cooper City, FL, was arrested after a traffic stop on Wednesday in Stark County.

Deputies say Fulford has warrants for hazing and battery out of Florida.

Fulford was taken to the Stark County Jail and released on a $5000.00 bond.

He is now waiting to be extradited back to Florida.

The first round of the NCAA football playoffs begin this weekend.

The Raiders, who have gone undefeated this season, have a noon game at home against Washington and Lee.  

Statement from Assistant Director of Academic Marketing Ryan Smith:

The University has been made aware of the legal matter involving D'Angelo Fulford, which stems from an alleged incident dating back to the summer of 2015, when he was a high school senior in Miramar, Florida. While this matter makes its way through the legal process, his status as an enrolled student and member of the football team remains unchanged.
