Colorado has suspended freshman defensive back Josh Moten indefinitely following his arrest on Tuesday morning. Moten was arrested and charged with third-degree assault and domestic violence after getting into an argument with an ex-girlfriend.
Apparently the argument started when Moten's ex-girlfriend demanded a pair of earrings she'd given him as a gift back, and then slapped him. Moten then responded by shoving her. Which, while I don't condone any kind of violence against women, seems like a pretty lame reason to be arrested for domestic violence to me. Even the police seem to agree.
Police commander Tim McGraw -- no, not that Tim McGraw -- said that the altercation was "real minor" and that the investigation is ongoing, and could eventually result in the arrest of Moten's ex-girlfriend. He said the police were forced to arrest Moten because the girl later reported feeling pain after Moten pushed her.
The only reason there was a domestic violence charge added was due to the relationship the two had in the past.
