A UNC football player was arrested early Sunday morning after an altercation in a parking lot on East Rosemary Street.

Police arrested 18-year-old Nicholas Weiler around 3:30 a.m. after he got in a fight with two other men, knocking some of one man's teeth out and giving the other a black eye, police said.

The redshirt freshman from Virginia is charged with simple assault, felony assault inflicting injury, resisting arrest, possession of a fictitious ID, and underage possession of alcohol.

Weiler was released from jail Sunday morning on $350 bond and will face a judge Monday.

Weiler is listed on the UNC athletic's website as a punter/kicker.
