Texas A&M Football Player Arrested for Assault


Texas A&M defensive back Derrick Tucker was arrested Thursday on assault charges stemming from an incident in March.

The police report says Tucker (a junior from Manvel, Texas), got into a physical altercation with another man on Northgate in the early morning hours of Sunday, March 24th.

The fight began after the two started arguing over tacos. The victim claims he and Tucker got into a mutual physical altercation, which was broken up. The victim then says Tucker fled the scene only to return a few minutes later and strike him in the back of the head.

Tucker played a large role in the Aggie secondary in 2018, collecting 27 total tackles in 10 games.

He has been released from jail on $5,000 bond.

WTAW has reached out to the Texas A&M Athletics Department for comment on Tucker’s status with the program.
