WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — More information has emerged about the battery charges against Purdue University wide receiver TJ Sheffield.
Sheffield, a sophomore, is charged with battery against a public safety official after he bit a paramedic on May 1.
According to The Purdue Exponent, Sheffield’s roommate called 911 because he thought Sheffield had alcohol poisoning and there was blood in his vomit. Paramedics arrived and placed Sheffield on a stretcher.
The Exponent reports that as a female paramedic was fastening a restraint, Sheffield bit her on the right forearm. The paramedic had to pull on Sheffield’s hair to get him to release her arm.
Sheffield was not arrested and has been seen practicing with the team.
Sheffield was named Academic All-Big Ten in 2020 and appeared in six games for the Boilermakers, retiring 19 kickoffs for 397 yards.
A jury trial is set for Sept. 12, according to court records.
