A Brigham Young University football player from Show Low has been arrested for violating a stalking order.

BYU athletics spokesman Brett Pyne says Josh Weeks has been suspended from team activities following his arrest this week.

Utah County Jail online records show that Weeks was released on bail Tuesday.

According to court documents, an Orem, Utah woman took out a stalking injunction against the sophomore March 4. Another woman also filed a protective order against him in February.

Violating a stalking injunction is a misdemeanor for first-time offenders under Utah law.

Weeks plays tight end and also served an LDS mission in Washington state.

Weeks set six 3A Arizona high school records in Arizona and was also recruited by Florida, Arizona State and Arizona among other schools according to BYU.

A university spokeswoman says he is still enrolled, but officials are reviewing the situation.

It was not known Sunday if Weeks had an attorney.
