Dismissed Arizona football player faces new assault charges

TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) A University of Arizona football player who was kicked off the team after an arrest on domestic violence charges is facing new accusations from a second woman.

Tucson police say 20-year-old Orlando Bradford, who was already in jail, was booked on four more felony charges related to assault.

According to police, a second victim came forward Thursday and alleged Bradford had assaulted her several times while they were in a relationship.

Sgt. Pete Dugan says investigators determined there was probable cause.

With the latest allegations, Bradford now faces 11 charges and is being held on $40,000 bond.

Bradford was arrested for domestic violence-related offenses Wednesday.

Coach Rich Rodriguez dismissed Bradford from the program ''as a result of his actions.''

It was not immediately known Saturday if Bradford had an attorney.
