University of New Mexico football starting quarterback Sheriron Jones will appear in court on charges of indecent exposure, according to a UNMPD report.
The indecent exposure is alleged to have happened on Oct.18 in the Cornell parking structure, the day before Lobo football lost to the University of Wyoming.
According to the report, a woman was sitting in her car when she witnessed a white sedan slowly passing her vehicle several times. As she was walking out of the structure, she noticed the same sedan parked between her car and the exit. She heard someone from the vehicle talk, which prompted her to turn around. She saw a male in the vehicle staring at her.
"Are you good?" she asked him from a distance.
"No, can you give me ten seconds?" the driver said in response.
As she approached the vehicle, she saw who she recognized as Jones "with his erect penis in his hand, and he was making 'stroking’ motions,'" as stated in the police report.
The woman said she recognized Jones from social media but did not know him personally. She told the responding police officer that she wanted to press charges against Jones. Both security footage in the parking structure and checking the license plate number on the vehicle confirmed the woman’s story and solidified Jones as a suspect.
No further action on the case has been taken past the arrest. However, Jones will have to appear in the Albuquerque Metropolitan Court in the near future.
On Tuesday, UNM football head coach Bob Davie announced that Jones was suspended indefinitely from the program. The reason for the suspension was not explicitly mentioned by Davie.
