MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) - Middle Tennessee coach Kermit Davis has suspended Marcus Tarrance indefinitely from basketball activities following his arrest on a charge of domestic violence.
Davis said in a statement Monday only that Tarrance has been suspended since Saturday night "due to conduct detrimental to the team."
Tarrance was arrested after a win over Akron on Saturday when Murfreesboro police officers were called by his girlfriend. A police report said the woman had a swollen black eye and a scratch on her face. She told officers Tarrance had hit her "several times in the last 10 months."
Tarrance is free on $1,250 bond with a January 2 court date. He started two of the first three games for the Blue Raiders.
