Tyler Judson — a Tulane Univ. football player — was arrested Monday … this after he was accused of punching a woman so hard in the face at a Louisiana Waffle House, she required a trip to the hospital.
The mother of the alleged victim told WWL-TV her daughter was at the popular restaurant in Zachary, LA in the early morning hours of Memorial Day … when a fight with Judson broke out.
The mom claims her daughter didn’t know Judson prior to the incident and didn’t start it … but says she was punched by the Green Wave safety anyway — causing severe injuries.
The woman says her daughter suffered “multiple facial fractures” and will require surgery to fix the issues. She also says the 18-year-old’s eyes were still swollen shut as of Wednesday.
Jail records show Judson was arrested and booked on a charge of felony second-degree battery Monday. Records also show he bonded out shortly after.
Tulane Univ. said in a statement to media outlets it’s suspending Judson immediately, saying, “Tulane Athletics is aware of Tyler Judson’s arrest.”
“He has been suspended indefinitely from the Tulane football program. Tulane Athletics will have no further comment at this time.”
Judson — a redshirt freshman — appeared in four games for the Green Wave in 2019, logging three total tackles.
He came to Tulane as a fairly touted national recruit, reportedly picking the school over offers from Baylor, Ole Miss and others.
