ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- A University of New Mexico football player has been suspended from the team following his arrest in a domestic violence case.

Coach Bob Davie says offensive lineman Jamal Price was suspended Tuesday after he was charged with breaking into his girlfriend's apartment.

According to a criminal complaint, Price pushed his girlfriend and Lobos basketball player Khadijah Shumpert at her apartment Monday in a dispute over an Apple television.

Authorities say Price, a junior from Pomfret, Maryland, and a friend forced their way into Shumpert's apartment to look for the TV. Police later arrested Price and charged him with breaking and entering and conspiracy to commit a fourth-degree felony.

It was not known if Price had an attorney.

Shumpert is a 6-foot junior from Minneapolis. Last season she led the Lobos women in rebounds at 6 points per game.
