Florida State running back Dalvin Cook is considered one of the rising stars in the ACC, but the sophomore is facing some serious allegations after an incident on June 23.

According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Cook was allegedly involved in the battery of a woman outside of a bar. The article from the Tallahassee Democrat indicates the police report was heavily redacted and noted the victim was intoxicated and suffered minor bruises.

Charges have yet to be filed, but ESPN reports Cook will be charged with misdemeanor battery. An arrest warrant is expected to be issued.

Additionally, the ESPN report indicates Cook allegedly punched the woman in the face several times.

Earlier this week, Florida State dismissed quarterback De’Andre Johnson after video was released of an incident at a bar, which the freshman punched a woman in the face.

Cook was a key part of the Seminoles’ playoff run last season and was considered one of the top running backs in the nation.

Needless to say, Cook’s future at Florida State will depend heavily on how this case plays out in the next few months.
