Morehead State basketball coach Sean Woods, who was suspended in November from an incident that caused a school investigation, is now facing more than just a school investigation.

Woods was charged with misdemeanor battery in Indiana on Tuesday, according to a report from WKYT in Lexington, Kentucky. The report states an incident took place Nov. 19 in which two Morehead State players told a Morehead State police officer that Woods assaulted them during a game at Evansville.

From the court document obtained from WKYT:

According to court documents, Malik Maitland told police that Woods backhanded him in the chest during halftime, causing pain.
Soufiyane Diakte told police Woods shoved him twice during the game - once during a timeout and and once in the locker room.

Woods was suspended with pay during the school's investigation. Woods was also suspended a game by the school nearly five years ago for belittling a player during a game against his alma mater, Kentucky.

Assistant coach Preston Spradlin will serve as the interim coach in Woods' absence. After starting the season 2-2, the Eagles have lost four straight.
