USF defensive back Hassan Childs will face aggravated assault and marijuana possession charges after an altercation led to him being shot three times Saturday night.

"The University of South Florida is aware of the arrest of student-athlete Hassan Childs", Lara Wade-Martinez, a spokesperson for the University of South Florida, said in an email to USA TODAY Sports. "And there are standards and there are values that we uphold, and our players understand it is an obligation and it is a responsibility to represent it the right way". Childs is in the hospital being treated for non-life threatening injuries, while the incident is still being investigated further to determine the aggressor.

According to the Tampa Police Department, the incident happened off-campus at 11:15 p.m.at the Eagles Point Apartment Complex on North 46th Street in Tampa. Childs again pulled up to Jimenez's vehicle and, according to police, pointed a gun at Jimenez, who shot at Childs three times.

Both Childs and the other driver have concealed weapon permits. As he pulled over again, his wife warned him that she had seen the driver flash a gun.

Jimenez, the man who shot Childs, claims self-defense after Childs reportedly approached his vehicle and pointed a gun at Jimenez, his wife and the couple's three-year-old child. Mr. Jimenez then drove home and immediately phoned 9-1-1.
