Authorities in Hamilton County, Indiana, arrested Indiana Hoosiers wide receiver Simmie Cobbs on Saturday on a charge refusal to identify, and he was charged with resisting law enforcement on Sunday. Both charges are misdemeanors.

Stu Jackson of TheHoosier.com shared a copy of Cobbs' arrest report:

"Indiana University Athletics and the IU program are aware of the arrest of redshirt junior Simmie Cobbs Jr.," Indiana said in a statement, per the Indianapolis Star's Zach Osterman. "We will continue to gather facts, monitor the legal process and take action as the evolving situation warrants."

Cobbs missed all but one game in 2016 after suffering a season-ending ankle injury in the Hoosiers' 30-20 win over the Ball State Cardinals. He missed the team's season-opening 34-13 victory against the Florida International Golden Panthers after earning a one-game suspension.

Cobbs had a breakout sophomore campaign in 2015, catching 60 passes for 1,035 yards and four touchdowns.
