Baylor guard LaceDarius Dunn, a likely preseason All-American, was charged with aggravated assault, family violence Tuesday because of a domestic dispute with a girlfriend, Sgt. Melvin Roseborough of the Waco (Texas) Police Department told CBSSports.com by phone.

Bears coach Scott Drew has indefinitely suspended Dunn.

The charge is a second-degree felony.

Roseborough told CBSSports.com that officers were called to Hillcrest Hospital to investigate an assault on Sept. 27. When police arrived, the victim, Lacharlesia Edwards, was suffering from a broken jaw caused by Dunn punching Edwards in the face, according to Roseborough.

Dunn turned himself into police Tuesday.

His bond was set at $12,500.

A source close to the situation told CBSSports.com that Edwards is not cooperating with investigators. But state law doesn't require the victim to cooperate, which is why police were able to file charges anyway, the source said.

Dunn averaged 19.6 points per game last seasont.

He helped the Bears make the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament.

If he is guilty he should be booted off the team and out of the university as well, if the assault took place on campus.  If he is guilty and Scott Drew takes him back, i will have lost respect for coach Drew as i have for many other colleage coaches.

Actually, tyson...Casey Sanders was arrested for the exact same thing while at Duke. We have also seen Blue Devils drive drunk (JJ Redick, Bobby Hurley, Reggie Love), commit academic fraud (Greg Newton, Ricky Price), dodge child support payments (Phil Henderson), get arrested for smoking weed (Alaa Abdelnaby), get accused of gang rape (Sheldon Williams), and associate with/"borrow" money from convicted felons (Corey Maggette). Maybe you should've just stayed out of the conversation...because now you look stupid.

I go to arizona state university and when we played Baylor that kid was acting like such a @$$. He flipped off the crowd, started two fights with our players, and got a flagrant foul for literally tackling a player going up for a layup. Doesn't surprise me at all what kind of person he is off the court seeing how much of a hoodlum he was on it.

As he should be. Seems that aggression on the court stems from being a woman beater.
