A University of Colorado football player arrested over the weekend after witnesses told police he choked a woman at a party was charged Wednesday with two counts of second-degree assault.

Jeffrey Hall, 19, was arrested at 12:17 a.m. Saturday on suspicion of choking a woman — a former CU track and field athlete — while at a party in the University Hill area, according a police report.

After police found Hall outside the party, officers said he acted aggressively toward the alleged victim, identified by police as Adrienne Lettow, and struggled with officers, so one of them used a Taser on Hall twice to subdue him.

Hall, who is free on $7,500 bond, was charged with five crimes, including two felony counts of second-degree assault. Prosecutors also charged him with obstruction of a peace officer and resisting arrest, both misdemeanors, and consumption of alcohol by a minor, a petty offense.

Hall appeared with criminal defense attorney Jon Banashek.

Hall is entitled to have an advisement hearing scheduled within 35 days, but Banashek said his client was choosing to waive that right. Banashek noted there were nearly 100 witnesses to the events at the party, and because the assault charges carry mandatory minimum five-year sentences in Colorado, he wanted extra time to prepare.

"We'd like to have a good handle on the evidence going forward," Banashek said.

Banashek declined to comment on the case as he and Hall left the Boulder County Jail's courtroom following the hearing.

Hall is next scheduled to appear for an advisement hearing April 17 at the Boulder County Justice Center.

The CU sophomore played in all 12 games for the Buffs last season on special teams and as a defensive back. He has been suspended by coach Mike MacIntyre.
