COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri forward Zach Price has been indefinitely suspended from the team after being arrested twice on suspicion of assault.
On Thursday, April 3 at approximately 3:05 P.M., officers arrested Price for Domestic Assault in the Second Degree and Second Degree Assault at his residence in the 3000 block of Troyer Drive.
On the afternoon of Wednesday, April 2 the victims, a 23-year-old male and a 23-year-old female, reported they were in their vehicle when they were intentionally rammed at least twice by Price, who was in his vehicle in the area of Bethel Church Road and Route K. The officers were still investigating the incident at the end of their shift on April 2.
In the early morning hours of Thursday, April 3, the second incident between Price and the same victims occurred. Officers arrived at the scene of the disturbance and arrested Price for Third Degree Assault and Domestic Assault in the Third Degree. He later bonded out of jail on the charges stemming from that incident.
The following day, the investigating officer in the first incident was unable to follow up on the case as planned, so it was assigned to another officer to complete. That officer contacted Price at his residence on Troyer and placed him under arrest for the first incident.
The victims in both cases are the same and both suffered minor injuries.
Missouri Head Coach Frank Haith said Price was immediately suspended while the case is being investigated.
Price, a 6-foot-10, 250-pound junior, sat out last season after transferring from Louisville. He averaged 1.3 points and 1.4 rebounds during his sophomore season as a reserve for the Cardinals.
