A Utah State football player was arrested in Boise early Sunday, following USU's 41-15 triumph over Toledo in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.

Sini Tauauve'a was charged with misdemeanor trespass and misdemeanor battery by the Ada County Sheriff's Office. The West Valley City native, 21, has been released. He is scheduled to appear in court on January 7.

A former star at Hunter High, Tauauve'a played at Snow Junior College before signing with the Aggies. He was a backup defensive tackle most of this season, but had recently been moved to the offensive line.

Calls made to Utah State coach Gary Andersen seeking comment were not immediately returned.
