Coastal Carolina University football player, Myles David White, 20, was arrested by Coastal Carolina University police Tuesday afternoon, according to J. Reuben Long Detention Center website.

White is charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct, according to the jail's log.

Records showed White is still in jail as of Wednesday morning.

A police report from CCU police says on Feb. 19 around 2:30 p.m., a 21-year-old woman reported that she was sexually assaulted in September 2016.

The report says the incident took place at her apartment in University Place on CCU's campus.

In an interview with White, he told police he went to the woman's apartment after she invited him there, according to the police report.

After a review of the interviews, police secured an arrest warrant for White, according to the police report.

According to the university's website, White is a junior and plays defensive line for the football team.

White was "named the team's Special Teams MVP for the Furman game as he blocked a field goal...… also blocked field goals at #4 Jacksonville State and versus Monmouth … posted a season-high nine tackles versus Charleston Southern as well as recovering a fumble for a touchdown early in the third quarter to give CCU a 29-23 lead," according to the university's website.

His bio on the school's website also says, as a freshman, he was named the Defensive Chant Squad Player of the Year.

Martha Hunn, with CCU, said White was "restricted from campus upon notice of arrest. This measure is taken during the University administrative process to protect all parties and the integrity of the investigation."
