COLUMBIA, Mo. -- Missouri guard Jason Horton
was arrested Friday on an assault charge connected to a weekend brawl that left his teammate with a broken jaw.
The 21-year-old Horton faces a charge of third-degree misdemeanor assault on an unidentified 26-year-old man in connection with the early-morning fight at the Athena nightclub in downtown Columbia.
The Jan. 27 incident left senior Stefhon Hannah
, the Tigers' leading scorer the past two seasons, with a broken jaw. Hannah is out at least one month and could miss the rest of the season.
Horton was arrested at his off-campus apartment Friday afternoon, taken to police headquarters and released on a summons to appear in court.
In addition to the victim, another witness identified Horton as punching the victim "multiple times" in the face, Capt. Brad Nelson, investigative commander for the Columbia Police Department, said. Horton was not defending Hannah or any of his other teammates, Nelson said.
