Ex-Missouri player arrested after Columbia fight

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- A former Missouri wide receiver working as a volunteer practice coach has been arrested after a weekend fight outside a downtown Columbia nightclub.

Columbia police say 23-year-old Tommy Saunders was arrested for allegedly punching a man once in the face outside Tonic about 1:30 a.m. Saturday. Saunders was released on $4,500 bond.

No charges had been filed as of Monday.

Police say the unidentified male victim was treated at University Hospital and suffered a concussion, chipped tooth and broken facial bones.

Saunders graduated in 2008 and spent his senior year as a captain. A Missouri athletics spokesman did not respond to an Associated Press request to clarify Saunders' coaching status.
