EL PASO - Logan Mansfield, a senior defensive tackle for Franklin High School has been released on $1,500 bond.
Mansfield was arrested Wednesday after being charged with misdemeanor assault.
He's accused of punching another player after practice.
The 17 year-old All-District lineman will be charged as an adult.
Cesar Carreon, a junior on the team, says Mansfield punched him in the face after a brief verbal confrontation.
Carreon was sent to the hospital and released with injuries to his left eye.
Carreon's father pursued the charges with EPISD police.
EPISD told NewsChannel 9 Wednesday evening, "The district does not tolerate any bullying or hazing. The situation will be immediately handled. (The action) will have legal consequences and school discipline."
Still no word on any disciplinary action against Mansfield.
