On Wednesday, Oklahoma State running back Tyreek Hill made headlines when he was named the Big 12 Newcomer of the Year after averaging more than 150 all-purpose yards per game for the Cowboys during the college football season. But late Thursday, Hill started making headlines for a much different reason, and it sounds like he could be in some serious trouble.

At around 11 p.m. last night, Hill was arrested in Stillwater, Okla. after he got into an argument with his pregnant girlfriend that ended with him allegedly trying to choke her. The woman told police that, in addition to choking her, Hill also hit her in the face and stomach. And while Hill disputed her version of the incident and even claimed that he was being arrested simply "for being black and she was white," the woman reportedly had marks on her body when police arrived.

Hill has been charged with domestic abuse by strangulation. The alleged crime is a felony that could result in Hill serving one to three years in prison and/or paying a $3,000 fine. As of right now, Oklahoma State has not commented on the alleged altercation or revealed whether or not Hill will play in the Cactus Bowl against Washington.
