Derrick Tucker has since been released from Brazos County Jail after posting bond, but he definitely has some explaining to do for his actions that got him arrested.

The Texas A&M defensive back was arrested on Thursday that stemmed from an incident that took place on March 24th where he allegedly assaulted another person over tacos. A police report stated Tucker and another person argued over food when the confrontation would soon turn physical.

Documents state Tucker at one point hit the person in the back of the head. What’s crazy is that the report states Tucker initially left the other individual with bruises and scrapes on his legs and hands before allegedly returning to the scene to hit the man on the back of his head.

“Coach [Jimbo] Fisher has been made aware of the situation surrounding Derrick Tucker,” Texas A&M said in a statement (h/t ABC 13). “We will continue to gather details surrounding the situation and have no further comment at this time.”

The Texas native has appeared in 21 games over the past two years. He recorded 55 total tackles and five passes defensed in 2017.
