KNOXVILLE (WATE) -- Former Tennessee backup quarterback Jim "Bob" Cooter was arrested on June 27 for a burglary in the Fort Sanders neighborhood.

Cooter, 24, of Indianapolis, Indiana, is charged with aggravated burglary.

He was arrested at 2:40 a.m. that Saturday at an apartment complex at 2201 Franklin Station Way.

A woman called 911 to report that someone had broken into her home. When police arrived, they heard the woman scream for someone to get out of her room.

As officers broke through the door, the woman ran from the bedroom.

Officers found Cooter lying in the bed. That's where he was arrested.

The woman said Cooter had broken in through a bedroom window. Officers found the screens of both windows had been removed.

While he played for Tennessee, Cooter was arrested and charged with DUI in June 2006, earning him a team suspension.

In 2007, Cooter was a graduate assistant on the Tennessee staff.
