Middle Tennessee's Tarrance suspended after arrest

Nov 18, 2013

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (AP) — Middle Tennessee coach Kermit Davis has suspended Marcus Tarrance indefinitely from basketball activities following his arrest on a charge of domestic violence.

Davis said in a statement Monday only that Tarrance has been suspended since Saturday night "due to conduct detrimental to the team."

The Daily News Journal reported that Tarrance was arrested after a win over Akron on Saturday when Murfreesboro police officers were called by his girlfriend. A police report says the woman had a swollen black eye and a scratch on her face. She told officers Tarrance had hit her "several times in the last 10 months," according to the newspaper.

Tarrance is free on $1,250 bond with a Jan. 2 court date. He started two of the first three games for the Blue Raiders.
