West Virginia linebacker d'Vante Henry was arrested Wednesday and charged with second degree sexual assault.

The redshirt junior who transferred to WVU from Arizona Western College was booked at the North Central Regional Jail with his bail set at $100,000.

Henry arrived on campus in July and was expected to redshirt and begin playing for the Mountaineers in 2014. He did not practice during camp due to "personal issues."

"There were strict parameters put in place that he had to abide by in order to play next season," West Virginia head coach Dana Holgorsen said in a statement Thursday. "The allegations made against him are troubling and very serious. He is no longer a Mountaineer."

According to the criminal complaint filed in Monongalia County Magistrate Court, a woman told sheriff's deputies on Sunday that Henry had sexually assaulted her in her apartment by forcing her to have sex with him.

After she told to stop, the complaint says Henry told the woman to "shut up." Henry told detectives he had sex with the woman but it was consensual.

Henry's name no longer appears on the WVU roster.
