Arizona football player arrested, dismissed from team

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) Arizona running back Orlando Bradford has been arrested on domestic violence charges and released from the team.

Tucson police spokesman Sgt. Pete Dugan said the 20-year-old Bradford was arrested on seven felony charges Wednesday. He is being held at Pima County Jail without bond.

Dugan said he couldn't go into details about the arrest but said police got a call about a woman who had been assaulted multiple times over the course of several days. Police investigating the call saw obvious injuries on the woman.

Coach Rich Rodriguez said in a statement that Bradford had been dismissed from the program ''as a result of his actions.''

Bradford faces three counts of domestic violence kidnapping and four counts of domestic violence aggravated assault. It wasn't immediately clear if he has an attorney.
