Nevada Wolf Pack Runningback Chris Solomon Arrested for domestic battery!
Nevada running back Chris Solomon was arrested on Sunday for first-degree battery, a misdemeanor, and has been suspended from the team.
“We are aware of the incident and Chris has been suspended from the team as we continue to gather more information,” second-year coach Brian Polian said in a release.
Solomon was arrested Sunday by the Reno Police Department. He remained in the Washoe County Jail as of Monday morning with a bail set at $3,000. A message left with RPD spokesman Lt. William Rulla, seeking further details, was not immediately returned.
The 6-foot, 195-pound Solomon, from West Covina (Calif.) High, was a redshirt freshman for the Wolf Pack last season. He was generally the third-team running back but showed promise when given an opportunity. He finished the season with 89 carries for 282 yards and one touchdown. He also caught three passes for 79 yards.
All three of the Wolf Pack’s top running backs — senior-to-be Kendall Brock and junior Don Jackson — are expected to return in 2014.
