Williams, 20, is facing three counts of aggravated battery of a pregnant person, according to Miami-Dade County records. He is being held on $10,000 bond, according to records.
“We are aware that football student-athlete Avantae Williams has been arrested by the Miami-Dade Police Department,” the spokesperson said in a statement. “He was immediately suspended from all team activities.”
Williams did not play for the Hurricanes last season after medical issues were flagged during a preseason exam. He said on social media in March that he had been cleared to play.
Williams joined Miami as a four-star recruit and the nation’s top safety in the Class of 2020.
