BOULDER — Colorado football player Jeffrey Hall was arrested last weekend on suspicion of choking a woman and fighting with officers, police said Tuesday.

The woman told officers that Hall choked her at a party late Friday, the Boulder Daily Camera reported (

While the woman was speaking with officers early Saturday, Hall approached them while another man tried to restrain him, according to a police report.

Later, Hall lunged at the woman, ignoring the officers' commands to get on the ground, police said. Hall swung at the officers, who shot him twice with a Taser before subduing and handcuffing him, police told the newspaper.

One of the officers was hit in the head, authorities said.

Hall, 19, didn't immediately respond to a message left with the university athletics department, and no working phone number could be found for him.

He was suspended from the team indefinitely, athletics spokesman Dave Plati said.

Hall was arrested on suspicion of second-degree assault on a police officer, obstruction of a police officer, resisting arrest, second-degree assault and possession of alcohol by a minor. He was released on bond.

Hall, a sophomore, plays defensive back and on special teams. He appeared in all 12 of the Buffaloes' 2013 games. He had one kickoff return and a fumble recovery.
