Florida State receiver Greg Dent was arrested and charged Sunday night with sexual assault, according to the Leon County Sherrif's Office online booking detail.

Per Florida statute 794.0115, Dent's charges are considered a second-degree felony, per the Sentinel.

"We are aware of the situation with Greg Dent," Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher said in a statement Monday. "He's suspended indefinitely from all team activities as we let the legal process run its course."

ESPN reports that in Monday's hearing, Leon County Court judge Robert R. Wheeler assigned a $15,000 bond on the condition Dent would have no contact with the alleged victim, according to the police report.

According to College Football Talk, the probable cause affidavit states that Dent attempted to have sex with his friend in the early hours of Sunday morning despite being told "no" twice. The woman was sleeping in Dent's bed after the two returned from a night club that evening, and the report states it was not uncommon for her to stay the night at Dent's place as the two had known each other since high school.

Dent caught 27 passes for 355 yards and two scores last season.
