Knoxville (WVLT) - A former UT running back, is now facing charges of robbery on campus.
Police arrested 33-year-old Travis Cozart in Loudon County Saturday.
Cozart is charged with robbery and assault in a purse snatching in Hess Hall.
This is the second arrest in the rash of crimes reported on campus last weekend.
Cozart was a standout running back for Lenior City in the early 1990's, and enrolled at UT, but never played.
He was convicted of aggravated assault charges ten years ago, after his daughter ingested cocaine while in his care.
Last year, he was arrested in Loudon County for evading arrest.
