The Renegades are still awaiting details on the arrest of linebacker Kyries Hebert, who is accused of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and resisting arrest after a marital dispute in Texas on Wednesday night.

"I don't know much about it," Renegades president Lonie Glieberman said from Michigan yesterday.

"We were informed there was a dispute between Kyries and his wife by his agent (Friday). He said he'd get back to us when he knew more.

"We really can't comment until we know more."

Reports out of Texas say the dispute was over a phone bill and that Hebert's wife suffered "extensive" injuries.

The 25-year old linebacker signed a five-year contract extension with the Renegades earlier this off-season, a deal that could pay Hebert in excess of $1 million.
