UConn center arrested, suspended from team
STORRS, Conn. -- Connecticut center Enosch Wolf has been suspended from the team following his arrest Monday in what police describe as a domestic dispute.
The 7-foot-1 junior was arrested just before 6 a.m. after police were called to an on-campus apartment to quell a disturbance.
Wolf had refused to leave the apartment in the LaFlesche building and got into a physical altercation with the woman who lives there, according to the arrest report.
He "grabbed the hair of the victim and pushed her head," according to the report. "Wolf also knocked the glasses off of the victim's face with his hand. Wolf continued to remain in the apartment and was subsequently arrested by police."
He was charged with 3rd-degree burglary, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He was freed on $500 bond and is due in Rockville Superior Court on Wednesday. It was not immediately clear if he had hired an attorney.
Coach Kevin Ollie said Wolf, 22, will be under suspension indefinitely, "until the legal and university process is finalized."
"I have spoken to the players on the team previously, and will continue to speak with them, about their conduct both on and off the basketball court," he said in a statement. "We have high expectations of our student-athletes at UConn, and I expect my players to live up to those standards."
Wolf, who is from Goettingen, Germany, has been a key contributor off the bench for the Huskies, following the transfer of Alex Oriakhi to Missouri in the offseason.
He has averaged 3.4 points and 3.4 rebounds in 22 games, starting three of them.
The Huskies (16-6, 6-4 Big East) host No. 6 Syracuse on Wednesday.
