WACO (December 18, 2013) The McLennan County Grand Jury Wednesday declined to indict standout Baylor defensive back Ahmad Dixon, who turned himself in on Sept. 27 after he was named in a warrant charging misdemeanor assault.

The charge has been dropped, Dixon’s attorney, Jonathan Sibley, said.

The former Midway High School standout was accused of assaulting a 21-year-old man who Dixon believed had broken into his apartment several months earlier, the arrest warrant said.

The incident happened on the night of Sept. 16 at an apartment in the 2800 block of South University Parks Drive.

The victim, who wasn’t identified, told police his cousin had invited him to play video games in a different apartment on Sept. 16 in the same complex where Dixon lives, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said earlier.

When he arrived Dixon and several other people were in the apartment playing video games.

Dixon accused the victim of breaking into his apartment and when the man denied the accusation and laughed, “Dixon began to assault the victim,” Swanton said.

The victim did not require hospitalization but did suffer injuries to his face, arm and elbow, Swanton said.

Dixon "admitted to this assault," according to the affidavit filed for the arrest warrant.

The Associated Press named Dixon to the second team defense of its All-America Team on Tuesday.
