    A junior linebacker at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill who accused of sexual battery and assault on a female student  turned himself in Wednesday, NBC News reported.

    Allen Artis, 21, was suspended from the football team after his accuser, a fellow student, publicly came forward in a news conference Tuesday.

    Delaney Robinson, 19, said the incident occurred this past Valentine's Day. She contacted police, the university and got a rape kit but she became frustrated when the university's investigation appeared to stall.

    The Orange County Magistrate's office issued arrest warrants for Artis for misdemeanor assault on a female and misdemeanor sexual battery. Artis was released on a $5,000 bond. Orange County District Attorney Jim Woodall told NBC News on Tuesday that its case was still open pending lab results and further investigation.
