FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) – A University of North Alabama football player has been suspended from all school activities following a weekend arrest.

Korey Jones, 20, has been charged with domestic violence, attempted burglary, criminal mischief, public intoxication, and minor in possession of alcohol.  He’s played wide receiver for the Lions for the last two seasons.
