Laremy Tunsil was arrested on Thursday night.OXFORD — Ole Miss All-American left tackle Laremy Tunsil was arrested on charges of domestic violence against his stepfather following an incident that occurred Thursday night in Oxford, coach Hugh Freeze confirmed on Saturday.Tunsil turned himself into authorities, Freeze said, after he allegedly assaulted his stepfather, Lindsey Miller, in defense of his mother, Desiree Tunsil.Freeze claims that Laremy Tunsil and his mother have pressed charges against Miller, although Lafayette County Justice Court officials could not confirm as of Monday afternoon.“Laremy realizes he could have handled it differently,” Freeze said in a statement on Saturday. “I am proud of him for standing up for his mother and protecting his family.”Miller, who has not yet been arrested, told The Clarion-Ledger that he denies the report and alleges the incident occurred after an argument with Tunsil on Thursday afternoon. Miller claims he never pushed Tunsil’s mother and that Tunsil instigated the fight.Miller alleges Tunsil struck him six to seven times.Miller also asked for and received a restraining order against Tunsil, which was issued by Lafayette County judge Mickey Avent on Friday. The order includes Miller’s two sons, Derek and Darius, as other persons to be protected.According to a report from ESPN, Tunsil was at his mother’s home when the incident occurred. Miller shoved Tunsil’s mother and in response Tunsil punched his stepfather, a source told Brett McMurphy.“As we gather more facts, we will act and make a decision accordingly,” Freeze said.The 6-foot-5, 305-pound junior is one of the nation’s top offensive linemen and is a likely top five pick in next year’s NFL draft. ESPN draft expert Mel Kiper Jr. projected Tunsil as the second overall selection in his first “big board” for 2016.An unnamed NFC scout told NFL.com that Tunsil’s situation would be met with understanding by NFL clubs, “if it checks out.”This summer, Tunsil has been tabbed a preseason All-American by a host of media outlets. He was an All-SEC selection last season.Tunsil is currently rehabbing a broken leg and dislocated ankle, an injury he suffered in December during Ole Miss’ loss to TCU in the Peach Bowl. He is expected to be healthy by the start of the 2015 season.Tunsil was likely the lone bright spot on an Ole Miss offensive line that struggled last season. The Rebels gave up 31 sacks in 2014, which ranked 12th in the SEC. They return all five starters this fall. Contact Riley Blevins at firstname.lastname@example.org. Follow @Riley_Blevins on Twitter.
