LOS ANGELES -- Southern California backup quarterback Mark Sanchez was released from jail early Thursday following his arrest for investigation of sexually assaulting a female student, police said.

Sanchez, 19, was arrested around 4 p.m. at an apartment complex near campus. He was released shortly after midnight after posting $200,000 bail, sheriff's deputy Ban Nguyen said.

No other details were immediately available.

USC officials said they will temporarily suspend Sanchez while police conduct their investigation.

"The university takes charges of sexual assault seriously," Michael Jackson, USC vice president of student affairs, said in a statement. "Depending on the facts as established by the LAPD, we will determine the appropriate action."

USC coach Pete Carroll said he was aware of Sanchez's arrest and that the Trojans football program would cooperate with police and "follow along with whatever action the university takes."

Sanchez is listed on the Trojans' depth chart as the backup to John David Booty, but was expected to battle for the starting job this fall. Booty practiced only once this spring before he injured his back and had to undergo surgery.

Sanchez, a redshirt freshman, played the recent spring scrimmage and has been practicing with the first unit.

His arrest was the latest of several brushes with the law for USC players, dating back to last year.

Cornerback Eric Wright was arrested in March 2005 at a campus apartment by officers investigating reports of an assault. The Los Angeles district attorney's office declined to press criminal charges against Wright because of insufficient evidence.

Wright left USC amid possible disciplinary action by the school and transferred to UNLV.

Linebacker Rey Maualuga was arrested Nov. 1 for allegedly punching a man at an off-campus party, but no criminal charges were filed. He sat out the first half of the game against Stanford the following weekend as punishment.

Damn. I heard about this yesterday. I hope it's not true, for everyone's sake. If it is though, how stupid can you get? You have a bright future ahead of you, and you mess it up like this.

Remember him palying at the Army HS All-Star game a couple years ago, and he seemed like such a level-headed kid.

Just shows you what a couple years in La-La land can do to even the best of kids...

LA sucks - I've been there a couple times, and couldn't leave quick enough. Driving half an hour to get anywhere is not my idea of a good time, and people seem fake. I'm from rural PA.

But c'mon! Don't you think your statement was generalizing? Unless you were joking, then i really should lighten up.

:dang: i forgot about that :busted: I am an Ohio State fan so I don't like USC but this is a ridiculus charge and should be dropped.........He was only arrested bc California state law says any charges related to a sex crime will cause physical arrest.
