    An incoming San Jose State University freshman — who was slated to join the school's football team — has been dismissed after being arrested on suspicion of domestic battery, according to authorities.

    The Spartans' head coach Ron Caragher announced Saturday that Kanya Bell, Jr.'s on-campus arrest on July 17 allegedly stemmed from interactions with a still unidentified woman.

    Bell, Jr., who was an SJSU summer school student, was booked into Santa Clara County Main Jail. The prospective wide receiver from Compton played for Diamond Bar High School, the announcement added.

    “We have zero tolerance for this type of behavior,” Caragher said.

    According to San Jose State Athletics department, Bell, Jr. is a native of Compton and was planning on studying journalism at the university.
