Tennessee has dismissed redshirt freshman running back Trayvon Paulk after police reported that he had hit his girlfriend at a party, according to reports.

The Chatanooga Free Times press reported: “According to the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, Paulk was accused of assault, though his ex-girlfriend, 18-year-old Chelsea Reese is refusing to prosecute or take out an order of protection. He will not be charged….While at a party on Saturday, Paulk and Reese began arguing when he “became very agitated and struck her in the mouth with his fist….Reese had cuts to her lips but refused medical treatment.”

Tennessee head coach Butch Jones said: “We hold our players to a very high standard and expectation with being a member of our football family.

THE BOTTOM LINE: Nothing makes us angrier than a grown man punching a woman – especially when it relates to football. And while it’s undoubted that Paulk will find a JUCO or another school to play for because the NCAA doesn’t seem to take battery as sincerely as the rest of society does), he won’t be playing in orange in Knoxville again.
