Zach Price arrested twice on same day and suspended by Missouri

Missouri's Zach Price, a transfer from Louisville, was arrested twice on Thursday on suspicion of assaulting his male roommate and a female friend.

He has been suspended from Missouri's basketball team.

ESPN.com is reporting that the roommate is teammate Earnest Ross.

Here are the details from the Kansas City Star:

Price was booked in the Boone County Jail on suspicion of third-degree domestic assault and third-degree assault [early Thursday] and released on $1,500 bond. He was arrested and booked again later Thursday in the Boone County Jail on suspicion of second-degree domestic assault and second-degree assault for allegedly ramming his vehicle into a car that held the roommate and the same woman in the afternoon. Price was released the second time shortly after 7:30 p.m. on $9,000 bond. Boone County prosecutors still were determining whether to file charges for the first arrest when Price was arrested again.

"We're very disappointed in his actions," Missouri coach Frank Haith told the Kansas City Star. "We're still gathering information -- been up all night and we're still working toward finding out what all went on. I can tell that you we're not real happy and we will discipline accordingly."

The 6-foot-10 Price transferred to Missouri from Louisville after last season and sat out this past season per normal NCAA transfer rules for men's basketball players. He averaged 1.2 points and 1.4 rebounds as a sophomore on the Louisville team that won the title.
