“Police have arrested and charged Justin Frazier, 17, with grand theft, aggravated assault, aggravated battery and two counts of armed burglary.

“We were aware of that situation before the game and our security people, when they told me about it, assured me that everything was fine,” said head coach Dirk Koetter. “I talked briefly to Gerald before the game, just to make sure he was ok. He seemed fine at that point.”

McCoy’s father, Gerald Sr., was home at the time of the incident and confronted Frazier in a second-story guest room above the garage. According to police, a physical confrontation ensued. Frazier pulled a gun and threatened McCoy, who suffered a broken wrist.

Frazier then fled the home, and left his backpack, which contained a stolen Xbox One. He entered a nearby home, where he was arrested by police.”

According to police, Frazier had multiple arrest warrants in different counties from prior break-ins.
