FAU football player Kalib Woods arrested, accused of beating up two students

Woods has been suspended from the team

BOCA RATON, Fla. - Florida Atlantic University wide receiver Kalib Woods is accused of beating two FAU students, breaking one of their jaws and causing internal bleeding to the other, according to a probable cause affidavit.

Woods was arrested on June 13 by FAU police and faces two charges of felony battery.

The alleged incident occurred on Jan. 13 during a party at the Venue in suburban Boca Raton, according to the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

One of the victims told police he was hospitalized for five days following the beating.  

The other victim underwent reconstructive jaw surgery, according to court records.

Both victims, who are friends, said they were also punched and kicked by Woods and others while they were on the ground.

The student with the broken jaw said Woods was upset with his friend over a foul in a basketball game that happened a year earlier. He said because of his injuries he needed oral surgery which required his teeth to be locked and limited his ability to talk and eat solid food.

Woods was suspended indefinitely by the university, according to a FAU spokesperson.

Woods is currently being held at the Palm Beach County Jail.

His bond is set at $50,000.
