West Virginia linebacker d'Vante Henry has been dismissed from the team after his arrest on a second-degree sexual assault charge.
Henry, 21, was arrested Wednesday. A criminal complaint said a woman told deputies she had been sexually assaulted at an apartment Sunday.
The complaint said she indicated Henry entered her room and forced her to have sex. She told Henry to stop,, but he told her to "shut up" and continued, the complaint said. Henry told an officer the sex was consensual.
Henry was being held on $100,000 bond at the North Central Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether Henry has an attorney.
Henry is a junior college transfer who didn't participate in preseason practice. Football Coach Dana Holgorsen said Henry is no longer on the team.
