Fields, who was separated from TCU last week on charges of assault, turned himself into Fort Worth police Thursday afternoon.

More, from the Fort Worth Star Telegram:

Fields was immediately processed and released on $3,500 bond at 4:50 p.m., court records show. The charge is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a $4,000 fine.

The alleged assault occurred at a home in the 2700 block of Lubbock Avenue around 3:30 a.m. Sunday and involved Field's ex-girlfriend.

Don't expect Fields to be back at TCU anytime soon. Even if the case is settled or thrown out, something tells me Gary Patterson has moved on from Fields permanently, especially in light of the moves Texas and Charlie Strong have made over the last few days.

As a reminder, here are the details of what went down last Sunday, landing Fields in hot water:

Haley Brown told officers that Fields had apparently been listening outside a bedroom window of the house as she and a mutual friend of theirs talked. She said Fields punched through the window and began yelling at her.

Haley said Fields appeared to be holding a gun in one of his hands, pointed it at her, and threatened "I should blast you!"

She told police he then came to the home's front door and was let inside by their mutual friend's roommate. There, he continued to yell at Fields and punched her in the face, she told police.

Officers noted in their report that Haley's right cheek was swollen and she had a small cut under her eye.

She refused to be taken to the hospital and told police she did not wish to pursue charges.
