A Cal football player was charged Monday in connection with a felony assault on a fellow student who will likely need reconstructive surgery after being punched at least three times in the face, according to court documents.

The Alameda County District Attorney's office charged 20-year-old Damariay Drew with assault with force likely to produce great bodily injury and an enhancement alleging he caused great bodily injury. Drew, a sophomore safety who graduated from Livermore High, has been suspended from the team pending the investigation.

During an afternoon fundraiser May 4 at the Sigma Alpha Epsilon house at 2722 Bancroft Way, Drew and the victim "exchanged words," according to a sworn affidavit from Berkeley police Sgt. Peter Hong. The victim had his dog, a 20-pound Jack Russell terrier mix, with him.

"The victim said Drew kicked the dog. Drew said the dog had bit him," Hong wrote in the affidavit. The victim sought medical attention, then filed a report with police Tuesday, according to a Berkeley police spokeswoman.

Drew was arrested Thursday by Berkeley police and held on $100,000 bail, which he posted Saturday, police said.

An arraignment hearing scheduled for Monday was postponed until Friday.

High schools

Nearly five years after leaving Valley Christian under allegations that he harassed and threatened his longtime girlfriend, former 49ers star Dana Stubblefield has accepted a position to rejoin the school's coaching staff next season.

"When mutual interest became apparent in rehiring Dana, Dana went through a comprehensive process Valley has implemented for all new employees, and he completed all of his steps to our satisfaction," Stephen E. McMinn, Valley Christian Schools' chief operating officer, said in an email Monday.

Mike Machado, Valley Christian's longtime coach, told Prep2Prep that Stubblefield is remarried and well liked by students.
