North Texas wide receiver Darvin Kidsy arrested in alleged hit-and-run

12:44 p.m. North Texas athletic director Rick Villarreal released the following statement in regards to Kidsy’s arrest.
“The athletic department has been made aware of the arrest of a member of the North Texas football team, although the information available to us is limited. We have reached out to make sure that University entities responsible for the follow-up and investigation of this matter are aware of this situation and we will receive our updates through those offices. Based on my knowledge it wouldn’t be prudent for me to comment any further on the matter.”
10:20 a.m. North Texas football player Darvin Kidsy was arrested Friday morning for an accident involving personal injury, according to Denton police. He turned himself in this morning after a warrant was issued earlier this month.
Denton police were searching for a suspect in a hit-and-run that occurred in early December 2015 that left one person in critical condition and another with non-life-threatening injuries. Denton police spokesman Ryan Grelle confirmed Kidsy was the driver, and they are waiting on a second suspect to be arrested.
“We’re still looking at one other person. That’s one of the reasons why we’re holding off on the affidavit,” Grelle said. “Because there’s someone else that has not been picked up yet.”
Grelle said Kidsy’s affidavit will not be released until the second suspect has been arrested. He also said there is no date or time scheduled for a hearing yet, but that it would happen “more than likely sometime today.”
Kidsy played in 11 of the Mean Green’s games in 2015 as a junior, catching 17 passes for 240 yards and two touchdowns. He also averaged 21.5 yards on six kick returns and four yards on eight punt returns.
