CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (AP) — North Carolina has reinstated suspended football player Allen Artis after misdemeanor charges against him for sexual battery and assault on a female student were dismissed.

Athletic director Bubba Cunningham announced the decision in a statement Thursday.

Artis was indefinitely suspended from the team last fall following his arrest tied to a February 2016 encounter. Artis had said the two had consensual sex and denied wrongdoing.

His attorneys also said UNC determined Artis didn’t violate campus policy in his contact with the student, while a misconduct decision could have led to expulsion.

Orange County district attorney Jim Woodall dismissed the misdemeanor charges last week because “the matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of the parties.”

The reserve linebacker from Marietta, Georgia, played in two games before last season’s suspension.

    29,084 students enrolled in fake classes at Chapel Hill. LOL Maybe Duke needs to take some math courses, since Duke thinks “indefinite” means ONE, and a non-conference game at that.

      I enjoy the rivalry between teams and mouthing off about each others team. Some of my best friends pull for the “wrong school” and then there are the hateful jerks who spoil the fun.
